Friends of Kootenay

At one time Grey Wolves ranged over the entire northern hemisphere, but over the years they were essential eradicated from the landscape, even in the national parks.

By the late 1940s there were no wolves in Kootenay National Park; however, they later recolonized the Mountain Parks and are now once again part of the natural biota.

They show little preference for special environments as they frequent all habitats, and may be seen traveling along game trails, river shorelines and forest edges.
