#LoboWeek, a first of its kind effort will harness the collective power of a WILD group of partners to educate people about the importance of wolves on the landscape of the southwest.
On March 29, 1998, 11 captive-reared Mexican gray wolves (Canis lupus baileyi) were released to the wild for the first time in the Blue Range Recovery Area of Arizona and New Mexico. Missing from the landscape for more than 30 years, the howl of the rarest and most unique subspecies of gray wolf, was once again greeted by the mountains of the southwest. This month, marks the 15th anniversary of this historic event, a significant milestone for the lobo and wildlife conservation. In recognition of the anniversary, Wildlife West will be joining the #LoboWeek movement to educate people about the Mexican wolf of "lobo" and our efforts to successfully restore this critically endangered wolf to their ancestral homes in the wild.
