Howl boxes help tracking wolves in Selkirk Mountains [Washington State]

    It will be interesting to see how well the howl boxes work in this capacity.

    Ausband and Loya have truly come up with a possible method for detecting wolves in a way that can augment current techniques that may also be less costly. I wonder how that other device is coming along…

    I thought howling had been determined to make wolf packs move out of the area and not to be effective because of this. Has something new been discovered or is this project going backwards?
