Red wolf howling events: summer recap and fall schedule

The Red Wolf Recovery Program  had a wonderful summer howling season!  From June through August, we hosted 12 howling events on Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge.  We lucked out and only had a single weather cancellation this summer.   More than 640 people joined us at these events, helping raise over $3250 that is directly returned to fund red wolf conservation efforts in the field.  Thank you to everyone for their support!

In September, we take a small break from the howlings, but there are still opportunities to attend a howling event this fall.  We offer three *free* events on the following Saturdays:

Free Fall Saturday Howlings

  • October 12 - Wolf Awareness Week - 6:00-7:30 pm
  • November 16 - Full Moon Howl - 5:00-6:30 pm

Here’s a preview of what you might hear if you join us!  This video was taken by Wolf Haven International (Tenino, WA), a participant in the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan program.

Special howls of thanks to Lizzy, our summer Red Wolf Caretaker intern, who conducted most of the howling events.  Thank you, Lizzy!
