As a result of a restoration project by the US Fish and Wildlife Service at the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge, red wolves, an important part of North Carolina's wildlife heritage, are reappearing.
In 1980, the red wolf was declared to be extinct. However, in 1987, red wolves were relocated to the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in eastern North Carolina. The following spring, two pairs of free-ranging wolves produced litters. The pups were the first red wolves born outside a zoo in years.
