Red wolves

Learn about the behavior, habitat, and conservation efforts of red wolves. Discover how you can help protect this endangered species and its natural habitat.
Once common throughout the southeastern USA, red wolves have been reduced to the brink of extinction. In 2015 the conservation of the red wolf was stopped & no action was taken to prosecute the small group of North Carolina poachers (male hunters) who picked off the remaining wolves one by one. A KEYSTONE SPECIES, wolves play a critical role in maintaining the structure of an ecological community. Without keystone species, the ecosystem would be dramatically different or cease to exist.

The Red Wolf is now common within the reintroduction area of roughly 6,000 km². However, the species' abundance outside the reintroduction area is unknown.

Red Wolf (Canis rufus) | U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service

As their name suggests, red wolves are known for the characteristic reddish color of their fur most apparent behind the ears and along the neck and legs, but are mostly brown and buff colored with some black along their backs. Intermediate in size to gray wolves and coyotes, the average adult red wolf weighs 45-80 pounds, stands about 26 inches at the shoulder and is about 4 feet long from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail.

Motherhood and Beginnings and Mayday Celebrations!

This month's theme is about motherhood and new beginnings. But today also is May Day. :) In August, my new release is Seduced by the Wolf, where Leidolf Wildhaven has his heart set on a loner red wolf, and Cassie Roux has other notions in mind. It's spring and the time for wolf pups and the rebirth of the trees and flowers-- but as a wolf biologist, who had been raised by wolves after her family perishes, she is dedicated to the wolf's cause. And that means, she has no intention of mixing it…
