Red Wolf/ Canis Rufus
The Red Wolf species are located in the Coastal Plains and marsh region.
Why it is Endanger
Their population was decimated by intensive predator control and loss of habitat
What is Done to Protect them
They located them and captured them. There were 17 wolfs left, 14 went to a breeding program. But in 1980 they were called extinct but there were enough Red Wolfs bred in captivity to begin a restoration program.
