NRS 464 - Wolf Ecology, Management, & Research

4 Credits

This two-part course: 1) provides students with a deep understanding of wolf ecology and management via in class lectures, guest lectures from agency, tribal, and nonprofit professionals, and field experiences, and 2) provides a hands-on opportunity for students to become engaged in applied wolf research. Throughout the course of the class students develop an applied research project focused on achieving broader effects beyond the scope of the class (i.e., impact wolf management or environmental education activities). Flexible schedules and out-of-class activities are expected. The class includes at least one mandatory weekend trip. Students may be expected to travel to remote areas of northern Wisconsin to conduct field research.
