Mexican wolves are one of the rarest mammals in North America. By the 1970s they were nearly extinct in the wild. Since then a small number have been released back into the wild as part of an effort to conserve and save the species from extinction. Thank you to WJ Wheaton for this photo of one of our Mexican wolves.
