Amazing news! A new, previously undocumented pack of endangered grey wolves has been spotted in California!
The sweet family of five, which includes an adult female mom wolf and her four pups, was seen in the southern part of the state.
The adult female is actually a descendant of the infamous wolf OR-7, which was the first grey wolf ID’ed in California in nearly a century.
Sign now to tell the California Department of Fish and Wildlife: ensure protection for this newly discovered pack!
The rare pack, which was discovered in the beautiful Sequoia national forest, is a stark reminder of the importance of protecting threatened species and the public lands that they inhabit.
Grey wolves used to be extremely common in California, but hunting, trapping, and habitat loss drove them to almost disappear into extinction.
Trump-era slashes to protections certainly didn’t help, and conservationists have been fighting desperately to make sure we don’t lose grey wolves forever.
These wolves are a symbol of hope, and it is crucial they are protected by the state’s wildlife agency!
