Uncover the complex lives of gray wolves with Museum instructor Sue Ware, PhD, as your guide to this member of the canine family. Rooted in firsthand research from six years as a contributor to the Wolf Recovery Project in Yellowstone National Park, Ware will highlight the work she does with wolves that have died in order to determine the age at death, trauma, disease, and cause of death. Learn what the physical remains of these gray wolves are teaching researchers about the evolution, behavior, and success of the reintroduction of this apex predator back into Yellowstone’s modern ecosystem. Then find out how the impact of disease, trauma and injury on the lives of the gray wolves can benefit other wildlife studies being conducted in Yellowstone.
