Neither heat nor rain nor gloom of day nor clouds of bugs kept us from the swift completion of our rounds at Awendaw’s Sewee Center for Red Wolves last Thursday, September 17. These beasts are magnificent and although they reminded me disconcertingly of our son’s 100lb German Shepherds, our irrepressible guide, Wolfman Bob, assured us that these pups were indeed the cat’s meow. Our trip began with a short film about the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and a tour of the center led by Education Coordinator, Emily Scott. Wolfman Bob then introduced us to two of his charges, Tiffany and Celeste, who are part of the red wolf recovery program here at Sewee. Bob is their sole keeper, and as a lifelong devotee of the red wolf, his enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for these animals is delightfully infectious. A good time was had by all. I look forward to next season when SINHG will return to the Cape Romain area for a trip to Bull Island.
