In an update released by the Arizona Game and Fish Department, one of the partners in the Mexican Wolf Recovery Program, two young adult Mexican gray wolves were observed and positively identified as the offspring of Ernesta. Ernesta was the female Mexican gray wolf that resided at Brookfield Zoo from 2010 - 2012 and was released to the wild in 2014 as part of the recovery program. Sadly, Ernesta's remains were found in January 2015, but as you can see from the below release, she has contributed greatly to the program as her legacy lives on with her pups. We are extremely proud to be a partner in the recovery program and to be able to contribute to this important conservation effort for the Mexican wolf population.
