I am…quiet, shy, wise. A strong yet gentle companion, having overcome obstacles from blindness to the loss of my pack. I am Rocky. Rocky was born on May 1, 2001, in the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area in New Mexico—a breeding success story, as this was the first endangered Mexican gray wolf litter to be born in New Mexico in decades.

To make matters worse, her mate and his brother had abandoned the pack, and radio collar signals revealed that...

I am…a matriarch, in the true sense of the word. I am more playful and younger than my years. I am a survivor. I am Madre. Madre is the alpha female of the Saddle Pack, who was widowed while pregnant in the wild. She met a new mate and foster father to her pups named Bob. With his help, Madre raised five pups. The Saddle Pack was released back into the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico, where it was hoped they would help the species begin to recover. Quickly accused of depredation and going outside the wolf recovery area, however, the pack instead became a target of hunters. On two separate...
