This is a much healthier role for zoos - breeding for release - than the approach to breeding endorsed by EAZA (e.g. with Marius & the 4 lions recently :-( )
Thanks, Cher

Thank You Evelyn. I have mixed emotions on this If the males take care of the females and the pups when they are born FANTASTIC I do hope this works because the wolves are needed more than anyone realizes. They are the ones who truly take care of our wilderness they are the balance for nature to be and work as it should. I pray the females natural instincts come into play in the wild. Wolves are very smart and will survive if mankind will just leave them to do what they are on this earth to do.

So on one hand we try and save a species and on the other hand we try to kill another branch of that species.

Good news...but, until the unreasonable HATRED some people have toward wolves is eliminated...they don't stand a chance.

I agree with Donna B. on this but also appreciate what Elke said - yet, always holding on to the hope that they will make it through these programs by surviving and thriving, but Pam's point is well taken. Praying for the best for them. They deserve the right to live without being harmed... this is their planet too.

This is good news. Now let's hope that the gun happy and trap happy people don't do what they love to do . . . kill.

Noted and read article. I am sort of on the fence with this, as I do not like to see humans fooling around with nature, on the other hand it was humans that brought these wolves to become endangered.People need to quit killing and trapping them, and leave them to take their place in ecosystems.
Thank You Cher for the petition and Ruth Ann for forwarding.

WELCOME GOOD NEWS; As a lover of wolves and a former Chicago Brookfield Zoo donator, I am very pleased to hear that this zoo is contributing to the Mexican Wolf's recovery in the wild. God knows every endangered species needs help, especially wolves!
