Summit near St. Louis to consider plight of endangered red wolf, as numbers halved in 5 years

Wolf experts from around the nation will be gathering this week to consider how to help the critically endangered red wolf…The matter took on more urgency recently when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service suspended the reintroduction of captive wolves into the wild until it could study the value of the release program.  Experts meeting Wednesday through Friday in suburban S. Louis will make breeding and relocation recommendations, discuss population viability and hear from government officials involved with the reintroduction program.
