Red Wolf Survival Plan Committee Discusses Preservation Options
At least sixty professionals met Tuesday at the state capitol to discuss new plans and developments for preserving of the endangered red wolf population.
The Red Wolf Survival Plan Committee members met as part of a three-day conference to determine optimal breeding grounds for the red wolf population.
Among the findings was that the captive population has actually increased from 200 to 244.
Leaders also discussed plans to create a breeding facility out at Craighead Forest Park in the near future, that will house up to three dozen red wolves.
The meeting will lead to concrete action plans for managing red wolf populations over the next year.
Immediate plans include moving red wolf pups to a facility that can better foster their development.
