I've been at the Museum sooooo long - longer than many of our interns have been alive. I do a little bit of everything as part of my job: care for the animals, work with the keepers and other staff, spend time with guests. Lucky me!

2013 red wolf SSP meeting

August 13th, 2013

The red wolf SSP meeting took place the end of July. About 20 folks from institutions that house red wolves were able to make it to the meeting.  Becky Bartel, the Assistant Coordinator of the Red Wolf Re3cvoery Program wrote a great post on their Blog about the meeting. I highly recommend checking out their blog ( http://trackthepack.blogspot.com)  for information about the red wolf recovery program and the red wolves that roam free in the wild.

Our two wolves- 1414 & 1287 – will be here again for next breeding season.

We’re really hoping for some puppies as this is really the last chance female 1287 has as she is just about over-the-hill.

 

Will Waddell makes bets, or bargains, or threats… every year. He’ll do something crazy if a certain pairing of wolves has puppies. This year it’s our pair:

Will Waddell, our fearless leader, says he’ll dance in the streets in a kilt if the wolves at the Museum have puppies!

4th red wolf shot since NC loosened coyote hunting

November 20th, 2012

In May we reported about the NCWRC law to allow for coyote hunting at night. It’s been more of a struggle for red wolves since then.

Here’s another article on another red wolf shot: click here.

QuikPost: new wolf is here

November 12th, 2012

I drove almost 1000 miles last week to get our new male wolf, 1414. He’s 7 years old, over 70 pounds, and he’s sired pups for the past three years at the Miller Park Zoo. We’re hoping that he and our female (1287) will have pups together this spring. We’ll share photos of him soon.

Jonathan and Jay arrived and we made the transfer from their van to my van in the parking lot of a La Quinta Inn in Columbus Ohio.

It’s time to say goodbye.

October 19th, 2012

Our male red wolf, 1369, heads out on Tuesday to his new home. I drove him to the Museum from NY and welcomed him just about 4 years ago and now it’s time to say goodbye. It’s a sad, busy, and exciting time getting him ready to head west. He’ll live in Tacoma, WA- the place I call red wolf headquarters. There is a large red wolf holding facility behind-the-scenes at Northwest Trek.

Aaron and I will be spending about 16 hours together in a vehicle getting this wolf on his way (the wolf is flying out of Atlanta so he can travel nonstop). The keepers are wondering what kind of singing will take place with Aaron and I trapped together for so long. (Maybe we’ll record something for everyone to hear).

Ranger Greg got this awesome photo of the wolf hanging out on the side of the cliff. This is how I will try to remember him

Senate’s Amendment to Farm Bill Threatens Red Wolves

June 23rd, 2012

And more bad news for red wolves :(

I feel like such a downer, but I think you should know that a bill being proposed in the senate would have grave effects for red wolves. Head over to the red wolf coalition website for more info on bill SA 2315 of the Farm Bill. There might be wonderful parts of this Farm Bill for many different constituents, but for red wolves, not-so-much.

Endangered Species: 12 in 12 for 12

June 21st, 2012

 

giant Chinese salamanders can grow to almost 6 feet long and weigh over 20 pounds!

Kimberly’s post about the 10 most endangered animals, specifically the giant Chinese salamander photo, reminded me of this really neat (and wacky) campaign that Gabby Wild has been undertaking. She has combined her interest in fashion with animals and created the 12 in 12 for 12 campaign. Here’s an excerpt from her website about this project.

She will be wearing 12 animal-inspired and originally-designed outfits in 12 months for 12 endangered species all throughout 2012. Yes, Gabby is only going to wear 12 outfits for an entire year.

See the list of the 12 endangered animals she is supporting as well as the 12 animal-inspired outfits she will be wearing.

I first learned about Gabby through the Red Wolf Coalition since she will be focusing on the endangered red wolf in December.
