Red Wolf Pups Bring New Sense of Hope to the Zoo
From Rhode Island Monthly:
As the warmer weather approaches, a couple furry friends have entered the world. Roger WilliamsPark Zoo proudly welcomed its newest members, two red wolf pups born on April 29.
This is the second year in a row eight-year-old Brave (the dam) and seven-year-old Diego (the sire) have added to zoo family as part of Red Wolf Species Survival Plan, a cooperative effort among the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) institutions to save species. Born last May, their first pup, Saluda, was the first red wolf born at the Zoo since 2005 and the first successful birth for mom Brave.
