South Salem, N.Y. – (1/30/12) – Senator Greg Ball (R, C – Patterson) was given the rare opportunity to get up-close and personal with some key ambassadors this past weekend. South Salem’s Wolf Conservation Center offered guests a glimpse of its ambassador wolves, nine-month-old pups Alawa and Zephyr, for a sunset photo op. Visitors were also given access to photo the WCC’s endangered Mexican and red wolves, rarely on exhibit to the public. The WCC is one of the nation’s preeminent safe havens for these beautiful, but threatened, animals. The ambassador pups are the first to be introduced since 2002.
