The internationally acclaimed Yellowstone Wolf Project oversees research and monitoring of wolves in Yellowstone. Of paramount importance in 2021-2022 is additional GPS collaring of wolves. With recent developments in the state of Montana, the team aims to collar additional wolves this winter in an effort to track and monitor more of Yellowstone’s top predators. Yellowstone Forever is raising critical funds needed for these efforts: GPS collars cost $2,500 each and VHF collars cost $600 each. Funds raised will also be used for monitoring flights which are key to locating wolves in Yellowstone’s vast wilderness.
The Yellowstone Wolf Project program is one of the most detailed studies of a large carnivore in the world, spanning over 25 years since wolves were first reintroduced to the park in 1995. Year-round field research helps biologists gain data on a broad range of topics, including population dynamics, predator-prey interactions, social behavior, genetics, disease, multi-carnivore competition, ecosystem impacts, and human-wolf relationships. Collectively, this work serves the park’s mission to understand and preserve native species and ecological processes, and informs wolf conservation efforts worldwide.
