CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Officials say two critically-endangered red wolves will now take habitat at the Akron Zoo.

Four-year-old brothers Waya and Mohe came to Akron from the Northeast Wisconsin Zoo as part of the Species Survival Plan.

Waya means “wolf" and Mohe means “elk” in the Cherokee language.

It is believed that only 60 red wolves are estimated to still be in the wild.

The two red wolves can now be viewed by the public daily.
