[ARCHIVED] Expanding the Pack!

Magma and babies

Recently we welcomed 3 new additions to Rowan Wild, thanks to our red wolves, “Clay” and “Magma”.  
On April 17, 2020 Magma gave birth to 2 healthy puppies. Little did we know that just a few days later we would learn of another red wolf pup, in need of a foster mother. Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center in Chattanooga, TN had a litter born just three days earlier than ours, but sadly only one remained.  With guidance from the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan, it was decided to transfer the lone puppy to Rowan Wild and allow Magma to raise it along with her puppies.  All have adjusted and are doing well! Keep up to date with Magma and the pups by following us on our Facebook and Instagram.

Red wolves are a critically endangered species currently only found living in the wild of eastern North Carolina.  With less then 300 individuals worldwide, the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan is a collaborative effort among zoos, nature centers and U. S. Fish & Wildlife service focused on the conservation of this species.To learn more about red wolves and conservation efforts visit or Red Wolf Coalition
