Heritage Park Zoo Welcomes 3 New Mexican Gray Wolves

20 November 2018   Ron Brashear

The wolves have a new exhibit at HPZS.

Three new Mexican Gray wolves are now at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary. The trio of female siblings arrived recently from California Wolf Center in California. Decisions for transfers and breeding of Mexican Gray Wolves is the responsibility of the Mexican Gray Wolf Species Survival Program (SSP). An organization that oversees the strategic planning of captive species often classed as threatened or endangered. The young females were captive born in 2017 and are acclimating to their new home. The wolves can now be seen in their new exhibit here at HPZS. Come by and welcome them to Prescott.
