Friends of the RED WOLF


Thank you for visiting to learn more about Friends of the Red Wolf. Regrettably, as of early 2015, FRW is no longer accepting donations. If you would like to support red wolf recovery, we encourage you to visit the Red Wolf Coalition’s website.

This change comes at a sensitive time in red wolf recovery, as the State of North Carolina has formally asked the US Fish and Wildlife Service to end the 27-year-old red wolf recovery program. As of early May, we are still awaiting a decision by the FWS as to the red wolf’s fate.

The decision to close FRW has nothing to do with this sad state of affairs, however. Rather, as the solo-person behind this group -- who is engrossed with a growing family (I have a toddler and a new baby on the way), and running a small family business -- I’ve come to the lamentable realization that I am unable to give FRW the attention it needs and deserves. While I hope to revisit this decision in the future, for now I must step away.

Thank you,

DeLene B.
