Endangered Species

It’s not easy to spot the New Mexico jumping mouse, a golden-furred critter that lives along streams in the Southwest. It’s rare, quick, and secretive. To find the animal, scientists have built a new kind of mousetrap—one that doesn’t hurt the mice at all, but tricks them into leaving inky footprints behind.  


Wildlife managers say investigators are looking into the death of a Mexican gray wolf that was found last month in New Mexico.

 A dozen Mexican gray wolf pups are being raised by wild packs in Arizona and New Mexico as biologists mark another season of playing matchmaker to bolster the genetics of the endangered species.

Mexican gray wolves have been blamed for killing nearly as many cows and calves in the first four months of 2019 as they did all of last year.

Missouri wildlife officials have placed six Mexican wolf pups born in captivity near St. Louis with two packs in the wild, in a new effort to repopulate the critically endangered species.
