Saint Vincent Island | Where Red Wolves Learn to Be Wild

Saint Vincent Island compacts a diversity of habitats into 12,000 acres, making it an ideal red wolf island propagation site. We explore the island with Robin and Mike Vroegop, members of the Friends of the Saint Vincent National Wildlife Refuge. Robin shows us the island’s freshwater lakes, and takes us to the site of the island red wolves’ most harrowing moment.

Rob Diaz de Villegas is a senior producer for television at WFSU Public Media, covering outdoors and ecology. After years of producing the music program OutLoud, Rob found himself in a salt marsh with a camera, and found a new professional calling as well. That project, the National Science Foundation funded "In the Grass, On the Reef," spawned the award-winning WFSU Ecology Blog. Now in its tenth year, the Ecology Blog recently wrapped its most ambitious endeavor, the EcoCitizen Project.

Rob is married with two young sons, who make a pretty fantastic adventure squad.
