Endangered Red Wolves, Black Bears & More:
Our Next Eco Adventure!
The roots of our next exciting eco adventure date back to last summer.
Our friends at Travel For Wildlife wrote a post about taking a black bear tour at the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in North Carolina. Then, they posted a story about seeing endangered red wolves in the same area, and the Red Wolf Recovery Program that’s trying to save them.
I’ve professed my undying love for bears many times before, but I’ve never seen black bears in the wild. Which is sort of odd, since they’re the only kind of bear that can actually be found in my native state of Georgia. But when I learned that both black bears AND critically endangered red wolves (of which there are just over 100 left in the wild) could be found in the same place, within a 10-hour drive of my house? I began planning our Spring Break trip for 2013 immediately!
