The Mexican Gray Wolves, (AKA: Lobos) exists only in the Southwest in the states of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas in the early 1900’s. Now there are only 42 of them remaining. The lobo’s only have two breeding pairs in the wild so they are losing in the battle to stay alive.
The US Fish and Wildlife Agency are working hard to save this sacred wolf. They are in the fight to save the wolves from extinction.
The Southwest Lobo’s are rare and once they are gone, we will lose an animal, which is so sacred, that we cannot ever get back. They are the most endangered and we must stand up and defend them.
Now, I want to give a little history about wolves. Most people view them as dangerous killers, when actually they are like us. They communicate within their pack. They speak to one another by growls, moans, and even their body language. The wolf is a teacher. The wolf takes one mate for life. Wolves are a symbol of family. In a wolf pack, they stick together and protect each other. Wolves also help balance all things upon Mother Earth.
Millions of wolves were violently killed off during the 20th century due mostly out of fear of the animal. The only thing that saved the unique animal was the Endangered Species Act, which was passed in 1973. But even today, there are wolf hunt’s and the Mexican Gray Wolf of the Southwest are just one group that are being killed off. Please help in the fight to save the Mexican Gray Wolf of the Southwest, along with all other breeds of wolves.
Please visit the following links to learn more of how and what we can do to save these sacred animals before it is too late. Please pass the links to all family and friends to help stop the senseless killing of the Mexican Gray Wolf (Lobo’s) and all of the Creator’s animals.
