Mexican Wolf

Mexican Wolves inhabited central Mexico throughout the southwestern U.S. The Mexican wolf was wiped out in the U.S. and few animals remained in Mexico. Mexican wolves were bred in captivity and reintroduced to the wild in Arizona beginning in 1998 with the goal of restoring 100 wolves to the wild by 2006. Today there are approximately 109 wolves in the wild. Wolves have begun to be reintroduced in Mexico.
