Howling Hope:  New Mexico Grey Wolf Population Makes Strides

26th March, 2024


Once near extinction, the New Mexico Grey Wolf shows signs of a comeback!

After decades of protection efforts, the wolf population in New Mexico has grown steadily.

From a low of 52 wolves in 2007, the latest estimates show over 250 wolves roaming the state.

Challenges Remain: Habitat loss, conflict with ranchers, and illegal killings threaten wolf survival. 

Conservation groups are working to secure vital habitat corridors and promote coexistence with livestock. 

The wolf's return is crucial for a healthy ecosystem – they help control prey populations and maintain balance. 

The future of the New Mexico Grey Wolf hinges on continued conservation efforts and public support. 

This comeback story is a testament to the power of conservation. Let's keep howling for the wolf!
