The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will host free screenings of the documentary, Red Wolf Revival, at the National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center on Roanoke Island on Jan. 24. Additionally, there will be a question and answer session at the conclusion of the Jan. 24 screening.
Red Wolf Revival (2015), a documentary by Roshan Patel and Nestbox Collective, captures the story of the United States’ most endangered canid, the red wolf, and the last remaining members of its wild population. Centered on the historic recovery effort in Eastern North Carolina, the film documents the multifaceted struggle to reintroduce one of the rarest animals on earth to North Carolina in the face of cultural, economic, and biological challenges.
The screenings and Q&A session are all free of charge. Doors will open at 5:30 pm and the screenings will begin at 6:00 pm. Seating is provided on a first come, first serve basis.
The question and answer session held after the screening on Jan. 24 will include updates on the current status of the wild red wolf population and insight on the conservation and management efforts of the species.
