There are only 196 Mexican gray wolves known to survive in the wild and in October of 2022, another endangered Mexican gray wolf was found illegally killed in New Mexico, bringing that number down to 195. Just days before this wolf was discovered, the Western Environmental Law Center filed a lawsuit on behalf of wildlife advocates including New Mexico Wild in defense of the Mexican gray wolf. New Mexico Wild will continue to advocate for Mexican gray wolves and the conservation of the wild places they call home because we believe wolves belong now, and always.
