SPECIES SAVED FROM EXTINCTION BY ZOOS


  • RED WOLF       
    (Canis rufus)


The population of Red Wolves suffered as a result of persecution and habitat loss in USA. They were extensively trapped and shot.
The recovery programme initiated by the US Fish & Wildlife Service is one of the most successful large mammal conservation efforts. Steps to save this species began in 1967 and culminated in the reintroduction of captive-bred individuals into the wild. The animals bred in USA Zoos were successfully reintroduced in several wildlife reserves and are breeding well.
