Exciting News: Red Wolf Cams Are Down, but for a Great Reason!

2246 and 2247

If you’re a fan of the red wolves at the Red Wolf Center, you may have noticed that the live cameras are currently offline. Don’t worry, it’s not a technical glitch or a permanent shutdown. In fact, there’s an exciting reason behind it!

We’re thrilled to announce that the Red Wolf Center is welcoming two new residents to its enclosure. Brothers 2246 and 2247, who have been the stars of the live camera feed, are getting ready to embark on a new adventure. 2246 is set to make his home at Charles Town Landing in Charleston, South Carolina, while 2247 is heading to the Fort Worth Zoo. 

But to fill the void left by 2246 and 2247, we are excited to introduce you to the newest members of the Red Wolf Center family: 2259 and 2261. These red wolves are coming all the way from Tampa Zoo, and will be the new resident captive red wolves at the Red Wolf Center.

The temporary downtime of the live cameras is necessary to ensure a smooth transition for the red wolves and to give them the time they need to acclimate to their new surroundings. It’s all about their well-being and comfort during this significant time of change.

The good news is that we won’t have to wait too long to catch a glimpse of our new red wolf residents in action. The live cameras are set to be back up later in November. So stay tuned and stay alert for the arrival of 2259 and 2261.

We can’t wait to see these new red wolves thrive and continue the important work of the Red Wolf Center in preserving this critically endangered species. Thank you for your patience, and stay tuned for the grand return of the red wolf cams in November. It’s an exciting time for all of us who care about the conservation of this species.
