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

  1. Salle says:

    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…

  2. Linda Hunter says:

    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?

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
