|Sewee Red Wolves!
Two four-year old sibling Red wolves have found a home at the Sewee Center. Amid much excitement, the sisters were brought to the Sewee Center on November 1, 2012. Growing up at the Salisbury Zoological Park, MD, the endangered wolves don't shy away from admiring viewers. With a population of approximately 300, the Red wolf is one of the most endangered animals in the world today.
