The Ethiopian wolf, slender, long-legged with its distinctive red-tinged coat is a close relation of both grey wolves and coyotes. There are only 500 Ethiopian wolves in the world, making them one of the world's rarest carnivores.
Their last stronghold is high in Ethiopia’s Bale Mountains, 3,000m above sea level. Here they live in large family packs, with an intricate social structure, preying upon rodents. Every single animal is important and they rely on Born Free for survival. About the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme and the vaccination programme
