The Wolf OR-7 Expedition retraced the approximate track generated by the GPS collar worn by the Oregon wolf known as Wolf OR-7. This young male grey wolf traversed over 1,200 miles through Oregon and into California, to become the first and only documented free-roaming wolf in California in nearly 90 years, and he is still out there . . .
Our team consisted of a wolf ecologist, a storyteller, a filmmaker, a National Geographic Young Explorer, a logistics coordinator and a wild peace advocate. Our aim was and continues to be about raising awareness of local strategies that make on-the-ground strides toward human and wolf coexistence in the region. Our mission continues as we release educational products and a documentary related to the expedition.
Wild Peace and Coexistence
As a Wild Peace Alliance project we encourage collaboration between all community members living with the challenges of human-wildlife coexistence. We will be asking ourselves and communities what can human-wolf coexistence look like?
Education with Adventure
We are producing a documentary film, multimedia content and hosting storytelling events to help us all understand wolves better. We are all learning on this adventure and invite you to submit your questions
about wolf-human coexistence and engage with us.
Tracking and Research
We will use our experience as ecologists and wildlife trackers to conduct a rough biological survey of wildlife and wildlife habitat along Wolf OR-7’s travel route as we go, using CyberTracker software, we will create a multimedia digital map of the wildlife tracks we encounter.
Ask for opinions on wolves in wolf country and you will hear everything between "this is no place for wolves" to "this is no place for humans." Oregon has shown us that by including a diversity of views at the table collaborative management plans can be effective.
