      The old red wolf exhibit was basically a pair of heavily wooded enclosures surrounded by chain-link fencing, and the animals were very difficult to locate. The two new exhibits are splendid for visitors as there are covered viewing areas at both locations and wide-open vistas that allow for easy viewing of the wolves. Large glass windows are in some areas, while there is also a long open-topped area with zero barriers as the public looks slightly downwards upon the canids. However, I'm not so sure that the two new exhibits are as great for the wolves as both enclosures are incredibly open with few pieces of vegetation. The zoo has had an enormous amount of success in breeding the critically endangered red wolf, and thus Point Defiance has been famous for its work with this species.

      I've uploaded about 20 photos of the new Red Wolf Woods complex.
