Arkansas State Working to Save American Red Wolves through Research, Plans for Breeding Center

Arkansas State University’s Mascot is the Red Wolves. So it is only natural the University would conduct research and support conservation efforts for saving the endangered species, the American Red Wolf. Arkansas State does conduct research as you will hear in this upcoming interview, but there is another component to preserving the American Red Wolf, and that would be building an American Red Wolf Conservation and Research Center in Jonesboro…preferably at Craighead Forest Park. Telling us more about this is Vice Provost for Research and Technology Transfer and Executive Director of the Arkansas Biosciences Institute Dr. Tom Risch and Vice President for Strategic Communications and Economic Development for the Arkansas State University System Jeff Hankins.
