Our Yellowstone winter wolves & wildlife adventure will prowl the Northern Yellowstone Range in search of Grey Wolves. Participants will see, photograph, and learn about wolves in the wild, and gain a better understanding of the complexity of wolf conservation in the United States.
Join us on our Yellowstone winter wolves adventure for an unforgettable multi-day winter wolves and wildlife safari. We’ll spend 4 full days exploring the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, focusing on the Northern Range of Yellowstone National Park, some of the best wolf habitat in the lower 48 States!
Why Wolves of Yellowstone?
Who hasn’t tried to imitate a lone wolf howling at the moon? Humans have been both fascinated and fearful of wolves for centuries. In the 1920s the last wolf pack of Yellowstone was eradicated by the US Government because the philosophy at the time was that less wolves meant more deer and elk. As time played out, the opposite became true and without wolves, the ecosystem was off balance. In the 1990s wolves from Canada were introduced by wildlife biologists into Yellowstone, and since then, Yellowstone has become a setting to study the importance of Grey Wolves as a keystone species which many other species relies on for survival.
On this adventure we hope to ignite your fascination with wolves. Participants will observe wolves in their natural habitat and learn about their physical and behavioral adaptations that make them an apex predator in the ecosystem, including their complex social structures and cooperative hunting skills. Participants will meet experts in the field who are studying the wolves of Yellowstone. We want participants to learn first-hand about the issues affecting the conservation of wild wolves and why we need to protect them.
More than wolves! With Yellowstone as their backyard, you can be assured that our naturalist will introduce you to all of the wildlife in the park and surrounding areas. You can expect to see bison, moose, elk, pronghorn deer, bighorn sheep, swans, eagles, coyotes, foxes, and ermine.
This adventures is for anyone who would like to learn about wolves and the ecology of Yellowstone National Park.
