The Mexican Grey Wolf is one of the most endangered species in the world.

Two of the most endangered wolf species in the world arrived at Evansville‘s Mesker Park Zoo Tuesday.

There are only about 300 Mexican Grey Wolves in captivity and about 70 in the wild in Arizona and New Mexico.

Zoo officials say the new residents will serve as foster parents for pups whose parents are unable to raise them in the wild as an effort to continue conservation efforts of the species.
