IFAW Tracking Wolves in Western Poland
The Rainforest Site partner charity, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is engaged with conservation projects all over the world. Their mission is simple: “to rescue and protect animals around the world. [They] rescue individuals, safeguard populations, and preserve habitat.” Their work, however is complex and varying. From protecting animals in Africa from poachers to releasing Amur tigers to the wilds of Far East Russia, their work is as diverse as the animal kingdom itself.
One of their many projects includes an effort to learn more about the wolf population in West Poland, as well as monitor their behavior. This research can offer valuable insight that will help them determine the welfare of both individual wolves and their packs.
How do they gather this information? Take a look at the video below to learn about some of the many methods they use to learn more about these beautiful animals!
