Academic Term and Year
The wolf is one of the more charismatic and polarizing animals to walk the earth. At one time, it was the most widely dispersed land mammal in the world, and is still found throughout the northern hemisphere. Wolves have been reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park and were recently delisted from Endangered Species status in Minnesota. This course will give an overview of wolf ecology, behaviors, and adaptations, as well as investigate the human interactions and issues related to the wolf. The course will include a visit to the Wildlife Science Center in Forest Lake, MN to observe captive wolves. Be ready to be outside on Saturday and Sunday as we learn to read animal tracks and sign in known wolf territories.
