Red Wolf Pack Fundraiser Toolkit

Red Wolf Pack Fundraiser Toolkit

Tue, September 22, 2020 by Hatton Gravely, Director of Philanthropy | in Lowcountry Zoo

Help us build the Red Wolf Habitat at the Brookgreen Gardens Lowcountry Zoo by starting an online fundraiser or donating today!

The Red Wolf is one of the most endangered canids in the world, as years of hunting and habitat loss had driven the species to the brink of extinction by 1970. Brookgreen Gardens Lowcountry Zoo is dedicating 4 acres of space to house and breed Red Wolves in cooperation with the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan.  The new enclosure space will enable us to house two breeding pairs with plenty of space in a natural environment. 

Community support in the amount of $100,000 is needed to complete habitat. Your support will assist Brookgreen in the effort to help the Red Wolves species survive. 

Here's how you can get involved to help our efforts: 

1. Sign up to become a fundraiser.

Start your own fundraising wolf pack to help us build the Red Wolf Habitat! It's simple: just sign up as a fundraiser and you'll have your own page to share with your network.

  • #BrookgreenRedWolves fact of the day: Adult Red Wolves provide excellent parental care. In fact, when there are pups in the den, the female will not allow the male to enter it. Brookgreen Gardens is joining the effort to save this incredible endangered species. Help build the new Red Wolf Habitat at the Brookgreen Gardens Lowcountry Zoo by donating today!

  • #BrookgreenRedWolves fact of the day: Red Wolves are carnivores (meat eaters). In the wild, they eat animal carcasses they find or animals they kill.  In captivity, they are fed meat with adequate protein, fat and fiber levels with some carcass or bone feeding to mimic wild feeding behavior. Help build the new Red Wolf Habitat at the Brookgreen Gardens Lowcountry Zoo by donating today!
