The Rocky Mountain Wolf Project aims to improve public understanding of gray wolf behavior, ecology, and options for re-establishing the species throughout the Rocky Mountains. The benchmark of our success: Wolves again roaming the snow-capped peaks, rim rock canyons, and primeval forests of the Rockies.
