Lobos of the Southwest

About Us


Mexicanwolves.org is a collaborative effort of concerned citizens and local, regional, and national conservation, scientific and sportsmen’s organizations using the Internet to help save the endangered Mexican gray wolf.

Our shared vision is a future in which healthy, viable populations of Mexican gray wolves restore the natural balance to Southwest lands, keep elk and deer herds healthy and restore the natural functioning of entire ecosystems. Mexican wolves are valued by Southwest residents and visitors as an intrinsic part of our natural heritage and as beautiful, intelligent, wild animals that contribute to our quality of life.

While all the organizations participating in mexicanwolves.org share the common goal of recovering the Mexican gray wolf, individual groups can, and sometimes do, differ in their approaches to specific issues.

Because there are so few Mexican wolves in the wild, it is extremely rare to see or photograph one. Therefore, most of the photographs on this site were taken in captivity. We would like to thank the following photographers for allowing use of their photography throughout this site.

Arizona Zoological Society, Elizabeth Bell, Jim Clark, Joel Sartore, Robin Silver, USFWS, Wild Canid Survival and Research Center

We would like to thank Bob Willis with The Image Exchange for video footage used in Living with the Lobo and the individual interviews posted on the video page.
