Reason for almost being extinct

There are two main reason as to why the Red wolf is almost extinct. One reason is the lost of it's natural habitat which caused large amounts of death for their population. Another reason is the intensive predator control programs. This made them a large target for hunters and even predators themselves.

What's Being Done to Protect Red Wolfs

In order to bring the population slightly back, biologists and scientist captured 17 Red Wolfs. Out of the captured Red Wolfs, two mates were put together to make potential children for their population. Another protection method was building a refugee for Red Wolfs.
