Last the weekend, three eagerly awaited red wolf pups were born at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham. Tentatively named “A,” “B,” and “C,” the pups will live at the museum’s Explore the Wild exhibit, a six-acre woodland habitat, with their mom and dad at least through the summer, where visitors can watch them play and grow.
Native to the Southeast, the red wolf is one of the rarest wolves in the world, with fewer than fifty remaining in the wild. The wolves at the Durham museum are part of the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan, a conservation effort among a collection of zoos and nature centers around the United States. Stay well, and welcome to the world, pups A, B, and C.
