The last wolves?

Noted conservationist Jane Goodall says:

“State and federal government actions are threatening wolf packs in Denali, Yellowstone and elsewhere”.

I went to Denali in August in search of wild wolves. It was my first trip to the national park, and I was especially looking forward to seeing the descendants of the pack that biologist Adolph Murie had come to know so well.

Murie’s study, begun in 1939 and continuing today, is the source of much of what we know about wolves in their natural habitat.
