This is A-State Connections on KASU. I’m Johnathan Reaves. This is the weekly segment called “A-State Connections and Create@State: Making Connections That Count”. This is the 50th episode of the Create@State podcast. For this episode, we talk about the critically endangered red wolf and Arkansas State University’s role in the red wolf conservation movement.
On Tuesday, August 27th, a stone sculpture of a red wolf and her pup was unveiled at the Bradbury Art Museum. That was made by sculptor Dale Weiler of North Carolina. Telling us about this event and Red Wolf Awareness is Assistant Coordinator of the Endangered Wolf Center in St. Louis Regina Mossotti, Coordinator of the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan Chris Lasher of the North Carolina Zoo, sculptor of Weiler Woods for Wildlife Dale Weiler, and Public Relations Director of Weiler Woods for Wildlife Loti Woods. I asked Regina Mossotti to tell the backstory of how Arkansas State University got involved in trying to save the red wolf from extinction.
