Gray Wolf Recovery
Weekly Progress Report

Week of Dec 25 - Dec 31, 1996

Monitoring

Continuing poor weather (snow, wind, rain) has prevented nearly all wolf location flights in Idaho, Montana, and most of Wyoming. A very limited flight located the Nye Female (#27) north of the heavily-timbered mountainous areas she has previously used but female #39 was not fund. As soon as weather permits ADC will attempt to capture #27 and any pups that are with her.

Information, Education & Law Enforcement

Wayne Brewster and Bangs are continuing to work on writing a chapter for a book on predators in the Yellowstone ecosystem. Bangs was interviewed over the phone for a Defenders of Wildlife magazine article on the National Wolf Strategy. The National Strategy will involve a process to look at how the Service will define its role in wolf recovery and how other scientists and the public will be involved in the effort. Exactly what that process will involve has not been decided at this time.

The weekly wolf report can now be viewed at the Service's Region 6 web site at www.r6.fws.gov/wolf.
