Wolf Research

from International Wolf Center

Program image

Discover how wolf researchers have learned to track the pack!  Join the International Wolf Center staff as we look at the history and methods behind tracking wolves.  We will explore the reasons why wolves are tracked, what radio telemetry is and what information is gathered once they are found.  During this interactive program, students will discuss what they think researchers learn from wolves.  

All programs feature real-time observations of the International Wolf Center's ambassador wolves.
