2014 Red Wolf Howling Schedule at Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge

Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge and the Red Wolf Recovery Program offer you the opportunity to learn more about red wolves at the only place in the world where they still exist in the wild! Meet at the designated time at the Creef Cut Wildlife Trail parking lot off of Miltail Rd./Hwy 64 for a chance to hear the harmonious howl of this endangered species.
