Endangered Mexican gray wolf population remained flat in new count

The endangered Mexican gray wolf population leveled off in 2017 after showing stronger growth the year before. The population grew by at least one, to 114 wolves in the wild throughout Arizona and New Mexico. There are 22 wolf packs in the two states. Although the 2017 gains were marginal, it remains the highest count since reintroducing captive wolves to the U.S. began in 1998. But while the gains were higher in recent years, the total population has only grown by four since 2014
