In early November, two Mexican wolf packs that call Wolf Conservation Center home discovered new territory! Since 2010, WCC visitors have been given the opportunity to meet only two of the WCC’s sixteen Mexican wolves, F837 and M805. The pair helped educate people about the recovery of their rare species by living in the Center’s Lobo Exhibit. Today, visitors will be granted a chance to view the exhibit’s new dwellers, Mexican wolves F810, M807, and M804.
While initially exploring their new home, the threesome was sure to detect the familiar smell of one of the exhibit’s former occupants, brother and littermate M805. The litter was born at the Endangered Wolf Center in St Louis, MO in April of 2003 and the three males, M804, M805, and M807 stayed there until their transfer to the WCC in December of 2009. Female littermate F810, however, was transferred to the WCC as a yearling and wasn’t reunited with two of her brothers until a year ago. The Lobo Exhibit’s three new occupants will help WCC visitors and webcam watchers understand the importance of the Mexican Wolf Recovery Program and the significance of the special wolves on our property that people are not allowed to behold.
Although M805 and F837 can no longer be seen by WCC guests, supporters can spy on the pair via live webcam. We hope that their new quarters off-exhibit will give the pair the privacy they require to start a family this breeding season.
