Ethiopian Wolves’ Conservation Status

Published 05/18/11

With fewer than 500 individuals remaining, Ethiopian wolves are one of the rarest carnivores — three times rarer than giant pandas, according to the Born Free Foundation.

The Ethiopian wolf is threatened by loss of habitat, hybridization with domestic dogs and the spread of lethal diseases carried by domestic dogs. The International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List, which lists all threatened species of animals, classes the Ethiopian wolf as endangered.
