NRS 103 - Wolf Ecology & Conservation

1 Credits

Working with educators from Northland College, the Timber Wolf Alliance, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and other wolf biologists, students are introduced to the history, biology, ecology, monitoring methods, management, and reasearch of wolves in Wisconsin and the Midwest. Students also explore common myths of wolves and discuss the future of wolf conservation. Through hands-on exercises, students learn the basics of wolf monitoring, such as howl surveys and radio telemetry. When offered in the fall session, this class meets one time during the semester on a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and also requires an additional night for an independent howl survey.
