Berry-eating, fish-hunting, beaver-ambushing wolves?

Free Webinar: The Secret Lives of Wolves in the Northwoods

It’s true! Join the Wolf Conservation Center for a free webinar with Tom Gable, project lead for the Voyageurs Wolf Project, about the elusive fish-hunting, berry-eating wolves of Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota!

The Voyageurs Wolf Project was started to address one of the biggest knowledge gaps in wolf ecology: what do wolves do during the summer in forested ecosystems? Despite decades of research, the answer to this question has remained elusive due to the difficulties of studying wolves during the summer. With the help of advanced GPS-tracking technology and remote video cameras, the Voyageurs Wolf Project has been able to get an unprecedented look at the summer ecology of wolves in the Greater Voyageurs Ecosystem in Northern Minnesota. This research has revealed new aspects of wolf hunting behavior and shown just how variable wolf diets during the summer are.

Join us to learn about the complex and fascinating lives of wolves in the Northwoods, and literally see for yourself (from amazing remote video footage) how these elusive wolves make a living.

The free webinar will be offered on September 5, 2019, at 7 p.m. EDT.
