Recent Voyageurs Wolf Project Photographs:
A small active beaver pond observed during our fall aerial beaver surveys.
A nice set of deer antlers found in the woods while out following wolves!
Project field technicians posing for a photograph at an abandoned wolf den that they were measuring and documenting. We visit every den wolves use once they leave and record a variety of measurements on the den so we can understand the features that influence where wolves choose to rear their pups. In this instance, wolves dug out an area under the rootball of a tipped over tree.
Field technicians deploying a trail camera on a beaver dam in summer.
A nice photograph of the some early fall colors along the Ash River just south of Voyageurs National Park.
