The long journey to recovering red wolves

Efforts to recover the endangered red wolf in North Carolina reveal the enormity of planning that goes into managing such a species in the wild. The execution of these plans requires extraordinary time, effort, passion, and dedication of biologists, geneticists, wildlife population modelers, disease specialists, and many others.

It takes an army of scientists, technicians, and partnerships to recover a species, and at the ground level—in the woods—the techniques used by trained field biologists are invaluable to saving the species. Red wolf recovery utilizes management techniques such as captive breeding, island propagation, red wolf release, coyote sterilization, and pup-fostering.
