The family of eleven currently live in the red wolf exhibit enclosure, the same home that M1803 grew up in. Although very elusive, this family helps visitors gain a better understanding of the importance of the Red Wolf Recovery Program.

 The red wolves on exhibit are very elusive but now thanks to the red wolf WOLFCAM everyone can observe the natural behavior of the red wolf family of four.

There are fewer than 300 red wolves in the world making it one of the rarest mammals in North America. The WCC is home to six red wolves. The US Fish and Wildlife Service is restoring red wolves to a portion of their traditional range in the southeast United States. Prior to reintroduction the red wolf was extinct in the wild.

Two of resident red wolves occupy one of the enclosures in the WCC Endangered Species Facility. These enclosures are private and secluded, and the wolves are not on exhibit for the public. The WCC’s second red wolf pair is on exhibit in the Red Wolf Exhibit which opened in October of 2009. For the first time ever visitors to the WCC are given the opportunity to see this rare an elusive species.
