The 8 wolf siblings arrived at the zoo late last fall from the Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka, Mo., based on a recommendation from the Association of Zoo and Aquariums’ Mexican Gray Wolf Species Survival Plan. It also was recommended that the 2 male wolves most recently exhibited at the zoo’s Regenstein Wolf Woods be transferred to the center in Missouri to be part of its cryopreservation program.

Currently, the 5 female wolf sisters — Rubina, Ernesta, Nancia, Celrue and Francea — can be seen on exhibit. Once breeding season is over in April, their brothers, Felipe, Redford, and Sancho, currently in an adjacent off-exhibit space, will join them in the main habitat.

Brookfield Zoo Offers Free Admission on Select Days in January and February

In January and February, admission is free on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Plus it is a wonderful opportunity to see animals such as the new Mexican gray wolf pack that like the colder temperatures, and to enjoy a variety of special events for the entire family.

I didn't know that they like the colder temperatures.

I came across a youtube video of the wolves' snow day at the zoo.  It's dated 12/15/10.  You can really see their pretty colors against the white. Love

"If the wolf is to survive, the wolf haters must be outnumbered. They must be outshouted, outfinanced, and out voted. Their narrow and biased attitude must be outweighed by an attitude based on an understanding of natural processes."
