Wildlife Heritage Foundation
The Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC) is sort of like The Island of Misfit Toys from Rudolph - they
provide home, sanctuary and love for creatures that don't quite fit anyplace else and that have no place else to go. They provide a place that is the next best thing to being able to live wild and free in the animal's natural habitat when that, for whatever reason, is no longer an option. The SWCC recently saved the life of an alpha female Mexican Gray Wolf,
F1188, from New Mexico. The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service had signed 'an order to shoot the wolf, which was accused of killing too many cows, but rescinded the order'after SWCC stepped in.
