About the film: In the American Southwest, a unique species of wolf unlike any other is making a comeback. Considered extinct in the wild nearly 40 years ago, the little known Mexican wolf has slowly pulled back from the very brink — against all odds.
From a founding population of just seven animals, this species has slowly grown to a current wild population of approximately 130, only to face a new threat from within: its own genetics. As part of a bold recovery mission, one lone wolf is given a chance to offer new hope for the survival of her species. In telling this story, narrated by Chris Morgan, “Gray Area” explores whether there can be a balanced and sustainable future where ranchers, conservationists, locals, and biologists alike can coexist with this apex predator. Experts from St. Louis’ Endangered Wolf Center, which played an essential role in the Mexican wolf’s recovery, are among those featured in the film.
