U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Somewhere between the coyote and the gray wolf genetically, red wolves are native to the southeastern United States. The species was declared "extinct in the wild" in the 1980s, but only to help promote restoration efforts from captive breeding programs, like the one at Point Defiance. Other groups, like the Wolf Conservation Center, have also helped boost the red wolves' population -- but while some of those efforts have been successful, the wolves are still endangered.
