Endangered Wolf Center hosts national panel to save the red wolf

They are some of the best minds in the United States when it comes to saving species.  They’ve gatered at the Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka with their sights set on saving the red wolf.  “There are only 50 individuals left in the wild and what’s amazing is that it is solely native to the United States,” said Regina Mossotti, director of animal care at the Endangered Wolf Center.  At one time, you could find red wolves in Missouri and Illinois; but in 2015, North Carolina is the only state in the U.S. where red wolves can be found in the wild.
