Non-lethal control efforts featured at Defenders Wolf Conference

By Kim Holt, Wolf Recovery Foundation.

The 18th Annual North American Wolf Conference, April 3rd – 6th, once again held at the Chico Hot Springs and Resort in scenic Pray, Montana was a great success. Sponsored by Defenders of Wildlife, Wolf Recovery Foundation, Madison Valley Ranchlands, the Nez Perce Tribe and the National Park Service, this annual event calls on wildlife biologists, ranchers, wildlife managers, conservationists and wolf enthusiasts to come together to share information on the wolf recovery programs. Topics were presented on the Gray, the Mexican Gray and the Red Wolf, as well as other worldwide wolf issues.

This year, something new was added, a Nonlethal Techniques and Tools Workshop was sponsored by Defenders, the Wolf Recovery Foundation and the Sand Dollar Foundation. On April 3rd and 4th, a select group was present to learn from, as well as interact with, worldwide leaders in nonlethal tools and techniques for wolf management.
