Tracking Wolves in Canada
Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada is one of the few places where you can get a sense of North America as it was before European settlers arrived. Only five percent of Canada’s native grasslands remain, and they are right here, filled with iconic native animals like wolves, grizzly bears, bighorn sheep, and eagles. Hike off-trail through rugged parts of the park that tourists never see, past grizzly bears and herds of elk, to help researchers untangle the complex interactions between wolves, elk, and fire.
