The public can now see a pair of endangered red wolves that were added to Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium’s Red Wolf Woods exhibit today.
Wilson, 11, and Havana, 7, recently arrived from Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Glen Rose, Tx.
There are now three red wolves at the zoo. Graham has been here since the exhibit opened and he will stay in a separate area than the new arrivals.
The zoo’s female red wolf, Ocean Blue, died unexpectedly in May from a uterine infection.
A meeting will be held in July to determine which female red wolf would be the best mate for Graham, who was Ocean Blue’s mate for three years.
There are less than 300 red wolves in the world.
