Government Suspending Coastal Red Wolf Breeding Programme

The service says the program is no longer as important to wolf recovery as it was in 1987 when the government first brought breeding pairs to Bull Island, near Charleston. Pups born there would grow and learn to survive in the wild before being moved to North Carolina’s Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge on a vast, undeveloped barrier island
