Background on Wolf Trackers:

Wolf Trackers is a project of the Wolf College with a goal to gather hunters and sportsmen, ranchers and farmers, wildlife scientists and conservationists, dog lovers and animal rights activists among others, and bringing them together to increase knowledge about wolves in hopes of helping to balance wolf ecology policies in North America.

During workshops we review recent changes to wolf politics and ecology, review wildlife tracking methods, and then caravan to our tracking sites where we will focus on seeing all aspects “sign” important to wolf tracking. In this regard, we will prepare ourselves for upcoming actions to support wolves and educate our fellow citizens. We also assess agreements for our group, share resources, and prioritize tasks that need to be addressed between trainings.

Our current focus is to • develop wolf tracking skills, • educate ourselves with facts, • clarify goals and strategies, • train ourselves to develop conflict resolution skills for internal group function and for dealing with the public, • educate our constituencies, the public and politicians with facts about wolf ecology and mythology, • develop standard operating procedures for volunteer work, • volunteer services when requested, such as acting as citizen volunteers for wolf monitoring programs, • consider requests from hunting guides, ecotourist and environmental organizations, government agencies, shepherds and cattlemen who would like assistance for on-the-ground wildlife assessments in their areas of concern.

Participation agreements: • Animal lovers in the group agree to bring compassion for those who fear wolves, and we understand that like wolves, sportsmen bring balance to wildlife, and have been some of the most successful conservationists in American history. In addition to wolves, sheep and cattle also need to be protected, especially on private lands. • Sportsmen in the group agree to continue a rich tradition of conservation, supporting scientific wildlife management, and we consider wolves who prey on healthy large game populations as a good challenge rather than an impediment to hunting. • Ranchers and shepherds in the group agree to bring pride for the hard work it takes to make modifications allowing for wolves on the edges of rural areas, and also come willing to discuss the impact of public land grazing on our shared natural resources including wildlife. • Everyone who attends a Wolf Trackers Training can express his or her opinion, while also respecting the opinions of others. No matter your background – wildlife photographer, fisherman, hunting guide, cattleman, sheep producer, hiker, backpacker or animal rights activist – we welcome your input.
