The California Wolf Center (CWC) in Julian, are celebrating the arrival of a litter of seven endangered Mexican gray wolf puppies.

The healthy seven-week-old litter contains four male and three female puppies that were born on, or about, May 8.

"We are over the moon excited about this important contribution to Mexican gray wolf recovery," Erin Hunt, Director of Operations at CWC, said in a press release Wednesday.

With careful conservation and captive release, the Mexican gray wolf population has surged to 97 in the wild with another 300 in captivity, according to the CWC, a different story then 40 years ago where mass hunting left only seven Mexican gray wolves in the world.
