July 28, 2006 - After a five-year review, the program to reintroduce the endangered Mexican gray wolf in the Blue Range encompassing eastern Arizona and western New Mexico will continue, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said.
In 1998, Fish and Wildlife began releasing wolves into the wild on the Arizona-New Mexico border to re-establish the species in part of its historic range.
The recovery team estimates that the current population is about 35 to 50 wolves.
