    Reflection: Wolves in the 21st Century

    The Wolf OR-7 Expedition team retraced Wolf OR-7’s dispersal route from NE Oregon into California to explore the challenges facing a wolf in the 21st century. As part of the team, I walked and cycled across mountain wilderness, public rangelands and busy highways and wondered how the region has changed since my great, great grandfather […]

    Wildlife Tracking as a Tool for Wild Peace

    From our bicycles, we could see the disturbance left by the large paws of a bear on the dirt road beneath our tires. I stepped off my bike to get a closer look. The bear was walking in the same direction we were riding. Bear tracks at a glance look remarkably human, this bear’s feet […]

Along with logistical support they blessed our […]

Here we are, a wolf expedition quickly moving away […]

Winter was the best time to study the Yellowstone wolves because wolves are easier to spot and follow in snow. But […]

    Along the side of the road in Malheur National Forest, David explains that humans aren’t the only ones using this stop sign… and now I’ll always be giving signs and posts in forests and extra close look. Post by Wolf OR-7 Expedition.

    Wolf Tracks! Team crisscrosses paths with a wolf

    Found in fresh snow, these wolf tracks crisscrossed our path for an hour. We were excited to find our first wolf sign of the trip and for many of us it was our first time seeing wolf tracks in the wild. It was incredible to lay a hand next to the track and see the […]
