Most children in the western world grew up with the image of the big, bad wolf imprinted by numerous fairy tales into their minds. Only in the last years has it become clear that drastic measures need to be taken to ensure the survival of this species.
“The Mexican gray wolf, a distinct subspecies of the gray wolf, once roamed throughout Mexico and the Southwestern United States. Today the global population of these animals is tiny — roughly 75 individuals in the wild, and another 300 in captivity.
Unless the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) takes immediate and dramatic action, this magnificent animal could no longer exist in the wild.”
