Hope (2225F)

Hope is the mother of 18 red wolves across three generations. She gave birth to six pups in 2022 and five pups in 2023—and also fostered a sixth captive-born pup who was placed in her care. In 2024, she gave birth to eight pups with her new breeding partner, Finch.

Hope is the matriarch of the Milltail pack, and her Tuscarora name means “She gives hope.” Hope has saved the wild red wolf population, which had dropped to as few as seven before she arrived. Hope and her offspring are a critical part of the present and future of red wolves.
