Earlier this year, a litter of four red wolf pups were born at the Tallahassee Museum. Traditionally, the pups are relocated after 6 months in order to continue breeding. However, for the first time the breeding program is at capacity and the wolves are staying in Tallahassee. For the next year, museum patrons and visitors will be able view the multi-generational wolf pack, consisting of the four pups and their parents.
The 52-acre nonprofit outdoor museum is one of 43 facilities in the U.S. that houses the endangered species. Since 1988, Tallahassee Museum has participated in the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan, aimed towards saving the native Florida species from extinction and reintroducing them into the wild.
