This episode of The Children’s Hour explores wild wolves. Documentary film maker Elke Duerr explains why wolves should live in the wild. Kids from the Extinction Diaries let us know about the Red Wolf’s current condition, and how close they are to extinction. We also hear from the US Fish & Wildlife Service Project Coordinator for the Mexican Grey Wolf Recovery Project, John Oakleaf. Finally, we meet the carnivore supervisor at the ABQ Biopark Zoo, Toni Esparza, who helps ensure these keystone predators don’t become extinct.
Learn more about wolves at the International Wolf Center’s website which is full of information about wolves around the world.
