  • The Story of Wolf B-300: Mother of Wolf OR-7 & Oregon’s First Wolf Resident

    The Story of Wolf B-300: Mother of Wolf OR-7 & Oregon’s First Wolf Resident

    Our expedition’s central character, Oregon’s famous wandering Wolf OR-7, was not the first of his lineage to have an epic tale of interstate dispersal. Before Wolf OR-7, the story of wolves returning to Oregon featured his mother, a female wolf known as B-300. She was born in central Idaho to the Timberline pack, descendants of the gray wolves translocated […]

    Before watching this video, take a moment to think about Wolf OR-7′s 2011 dispersal across Oregon and Northern California. In your mind, what do you see? Do you think of a map, maybe with lines or data on it? For most people following the story of Wolf OR-7 around the world, maps like the one […]
  • Wolf OR-7’s Journey in Photos From the Forest Floor

    Wolf OR-7’s Journey in Photos From the Forest Floor

    During the days we spent walking Wolf OR-7’s dispersal route, I found myself endlessly fascinated watching the landscape transform. Some transitions were stark, like exiting a tree line as we rode out of Malheur National Forest into the open expanses of the Harney Basin, a flat and sparse landscape. Other transitions were gradual, only noticeable over the […]

  • TALES: The Wolf’s Eyelashes

    TALES: The Wolf’s Eyelashes

    There once lived a wealthy tradesman who had a daughter named Akiko. Akiko was generous and well-loved. Early in her life, her mother died and her father remarried a woman who was sharp-tongued and mean. Envy surged through every inch of the new wife’s soul. She tried to weaken Akiko’s grace and charm by ordering her to take on extra household tasks. Although the work loomed before her like an immense mountain, Akiko worked until it was done… and she still managed to greet visitors at the door with a smile and beggars with a bowl of rice.

    European Wolf OR-7? Wolf Makes 1,200-Mile Dispersal

    “Incredible journey: one wolf’s migration across Europe” reads like a great companion to the story of Wolf OR-7. A Slovenian wolf dispersed from his pack in 2011, traveled an estimated 2,000 km (roughly 1,200 miles) and crossed the Austrian Alps, and is now known to have a mate and growing pack in Italy. What can we […]

    TALES: Tsarevich Ivan and Grey Wolf

    Once upon a time there was a Tsar named Berendei, and he had three sons, the youngest of whom was called Ivan. Now the Tsar had a beautiful garden with an apple-tree in it that bore golden apples. One day the Tsar found that somebody was visiting his garden and stealing his golden apples. The Tsar was very unhappy about this. He sent watchmen into the garden, but they were unable to catch the thief.

    Special Thanks for the Extra Help Along the Way

    On any expedition there are the team members out on trail bracing against the elements and challenges, but there are many others behind the scenes that make that possible. Our team support grew the further we went. Volunteers brought food and offered educational and social media support, even sponsoring our fuel and the use of the logistics […]

    Loch and Sarah generously hosted a gathering for our team and the Pacific Wolf Coalition on their beautiful Devil’s Gate Ranch in Siskiyou County, California. We were very fortunate to have connected with them. Wolf OR-7 likely crossed right through Loch and Sarah’s ranch along Butte Creek, which prompted Loch to begin researching what wolf recovery could […]

    Meiss Lake (Panorama)

    The bed of Meiss Lake stretches before us—transformed to a dry grass plane in the parched summer heat. Across this ocean of grass we drift, dreaming of wolves, chasing our tails back round towards Oregon and our journey’s end.

    1. Without sponsors many important and inspiring expeditions would not happen. 2. A sponsor not only provides vital funding and equipment, but also a network of support, encouragement and good advice. 3. Sponsorship is a way for companies, individuals and foundations to give back to places and people that make their work profitable in the […]
