A 2002 estimate places the number of gray wolves worldwide at about 300,000.

Reference.com says that about 5,000 live in the lower 48 states of the United States, while between 7,000 and 11,000 live in Alaska.

The gray wolf is considered an IUCN Species of Least Concern.

The red wolf is considered critically endangered.
