The Red Wolf
Red Wolves are found in coastal prairie and marsh habitats in the coastal region.
Why Are They Endangered?
Red wolves are endangered mostly because of human development. This lead to habitat loss. Severe weather, death due to motor vehicles, and illegal killings are other reasons for the wolves to be endangered.
How Can We Protect Them?
People have been working to protect Red Wolves since the 1980's. Public education is one way people are helping to save Red Wolves. After this, what was once thought to be extinct isn't and now there are over 100 wolves in NC.
