Albuquerque, NM – While the University of New Mexico Lobos are getting ready to battle the Aztecs in San Diego this weekend, UNM students and others here at home are helping New Mexico's wild mascot in its battle for survival. Governor Richardson has declared this the state's first "Wolf Awareness Week." Nathan Newcomer, of the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, says they group has been working to educate people, around the state and on campus.

"The UNM mascot, the lobo, the Mexican grey wolf, is going extinct. There are about 25 wild lobos left in New Mexico, which is just a staggering figure."

Newcomer was at UNM this week urging students and staff to sign a resolution that asks the federal government to increase recovery efforts until the wolf population numbers at least 100. That goal was set in 1982, but conflicts with cattle grazing in the recovery area have hampered the effort. Phil Carter, also with the UNM Wilderness Alliance explains federal help is necessary.

"We are calling upon the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other federal agencies to revise some of their policies,which we believe are hindering the success of wolf populations in the wild."

The resolution and a list of related "Wolf Awareness Week" events can be found on the UNM website at http://www.unm.edu.
