Two endangered red wolf pups were born at the Roger Williams Park Zoo last month, marking the second year in a row the zoo has celebrated a red-wolf birth, the zoo announced Tuesday.

Born April 29, the two pups are the second litter for Brave, 8, and Diego, 7. Brave gave birth to the pups’ sister, Saluda, last May. According to the zoo, Brave and Diego were recommended to breed as part of the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan, a cooperative effort by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to save the species.
