Zoo Knoxville is inviting the community to help choose a name for the first critically endangered red wolf pup born at the zoo in 23 years.
The feisty male, born at the zoo on April 30 to parents Sunny and Saaron, continues to thrive and will soon be venturing out of his den to begin exploring his habitat under the watchful eye of mom and dad. One of fewer than 300 red wolves in the world, his name will honor his birthright as part of the future of red wolf conservation in Zoo Knoxville has a special web site set up to accept suggested names, which can be submitted now through Monday, May 30. We are still deciding on our name. 🙂
After all the names are reviewed, three options will be selected for the community to vote on beginning Tuesday, May 31 through Sunday, June 5. The winning name will be announced on Monday, June 6. Names can be submitted online here and through links on the Zoo Knoxville web site at or the zoo’s official Facebook page.
