Featured A.D.O.P.T. animal is the Mexican Wolf for $75.

 

The scientific name for the Mexican Wolf is Canis lupus baileyi. Wolves are considered a keystone species, meaning that other species depend on the wolves for survival. Their presence or absence has a huge impact on their ecosystem. The US Fish and Wildlife Service, with the help of AZA accredited zoos, is currently running a captive breeding and reintroduction program for Mexican Wolves. In 1998 the first wolves were reintroduced in southwestern Arizona and New Mexico, and a wolf born at Binder Park zoo became the first to produce a litter of pups in the wild in 50 years. A wolf pack averages 4-8 individuals. Wolves use a sophisticated communication system consisting of vocalization, scent, and body posture.
