At one point, only five Mexican gray wolves and fourteen red wolves existed in the wild, says Steve Parker, director of operations at the nonprofit Endangered Wolf Center (6750 Tyson Valley Road; Eureka). Now, thanks to managed breeding and care facilities, those numbers have risen to 75 and 100 wolves, respectively -- and you can howl with some of them this summer! The Endangered Wolf Center reopens to the public after a couple months' closure for puppy season with a full calendar of food and fun.
