Initial Releases and Translocations in the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area
Mexican Wolf Interagency Field Team
Outlines initial releases and translocations of wolves between 1998 and 2013. Initial releases (wolves born in captivity and have no pervious wild experience) can only occur in Arizona in the primary recovery zone in the Apache National Forest. Translocations (previously released wolves or wolves born in the wild) can occur in either the primary or secondary recovery zone. Wolves are not allowed to established territories on public lands wholly outside the recovery zone boundary and must be retrieved.
