Kim Wheeler Wins Roosevelt-Ashe Award

Kim Wheeler, the Red Wolf Coalition’s Executive Director, has won Wild South’s prestigious Roosevelt-Ashe Conservation Award for Outstanding Educator. We are proud of Kim’s accomplishments, and we are fortunate to have her as the leader of the Red Wolf Coalition. Among her signature achievements are the public programs she conducted for three years at the Red Wolf Education Center (REC) in Columbia, North Carolina. These programs showcased not only the red wolf but national wildlife refuge values as well. The Red Wolf Coalition secured all of the funding for the wolf enclosures at the REC, as well as for the veterinary holding pens, and also donated the bleachers in the woods.
