The Wolf River Conservancy near Memphis recently increased by 130 acres thanks to support from Wildlife Forever. The additional acreage will help expand more than 4,000 acres that is covered by the Wolf River Conservancy. Proposed developments along the river’s greenways have increased the urgency of protecting many of the critical habitat areas. In addition to white-tailed deer, squirrels, and wood ducks, approximately 20 song and predatory birds of Special Concern use the areas. The area also contains several state-listed endangered and threatened species. The Wolf River drainage is one of only two remaining un-channeled swamp river systems in the state.
