Tracking of wildlife informs future conservation initiatives

25-SponsorVolunteer story 1 - wolf in Teanaway
Dear MSAF,

Your generosity sponsors a volunteer on one of our Citizen Wildlife Monitoring teams who is placing cameras in the Teanaway area. The team is led by experienced volunteers Amy and Mike and is focused on the detection of gray wolves. Located just northeast of Cle Elum in Washington’s Cascades, Teanaway is rich with a large diversity of wildlife, from elk to black bear to foxes to cougars and the Teanaway wolf pack.  Last June, the state confirmed this pack (with the help of this photo) and Conservation Northwest has been working to see if the pack is breeding (it is) and if wolves from this pack will disperse southward. Knowing how many packs are in Washington is an important step in the recovery of this native species. Thank you, MSAF, for your support.
