Grey Wolves in

the Northern Rockies

After watching the Introductory Video that provides ecological and historical background about wolf conservation, students use real-world data to evaluate whether gray wolves in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming have met Recovery Criteria. Using GIS data, free GIS software, and our GIS Tutorial, students map the locations of gray wolf packs throughout the Northern Rocky Mountains to evaluate the degree to which gray wolves have expanded geographically.  Students also learn about the different stakeholders involved with wolf conservation.  As a capstone activity, student groups share findings with their peers and participate in a mock stakeholder meeting.
