As the only surviving litter of their parents, instantly the two pups became extremely genetically valuable to the Mexican wolf recovery. The Species Survival Plan (SSP) made the decision to have the pups hand-raised and fostered by a pair of adult wolves. The SSP is an effort by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to help ensure the survival...
