The red wolf is a unique wolf species found in the American southeast. Conservationists are trying to save the last members of the species from extinction, a difficult task since the remaining wolves face hunters and interbreeding with coyotes. This beautiful wolf species is featured in our gallery on the eight most endangered canid species in the world.
