JONESBORO – The Arkansas State University Red Wolves may be thriving, but the ones found in the wild are not. A group of ASU faculty and students are now hoping to change that.”It is important because it is a part of our American culture,” said Tom Risch, department chair of the Department of Biological Science. “It is the only carnivore that is uniquely ours, and it went extinct in the wild. So, we’ve heard how we need to save the tigers and elephants in the world. Here is a chance we can save an animal in our own backyard.”
