The births were welcomed by animal rights advocates and mark the first time a litter of red wolves was born in the wild since 2018. "This red wolf pair was formed through the combination of several management actions and the two red wolves subsequently following their natural instincts in pairing, establishing their territory and mating," the Red Wolf Recovery Program wrote in their Facebook post on Thursday. "Every generation yields a new born hope for the red wolf … a cause for joy and celebration!"
