Programme - Monitoring

 to detect changes of status and threats in all wolf populations.


Every year we monitor some 20 wolf packs in core areas and a as many as 40 other in peripheral areas in the Bale Mountains.  As a result, the dynamics of this Ethiopian wolf population is arguably the best known among endangered carnivore species.

This intimate knowledge of wolf families underpins all our work, such as the targeted vaccinations to minimize pack extinctions during rabies outbreaks.
