What: Dundas Island Group Wolf Study
Who: Lax Kw’alaams biological field staff, BC Parks representatives and Wolf Biologists
When: July -October 2021
Where: Various locations on the Dundas Island Group
Lax Kw’alaams and BC Parks have hired wolf researchers to investigate issues surrounding the wolf population on the Dundas Island Groups. This scientific research program aims to understand the wolf population and help make the area safer for members.
This research will take place between July – October 2021.
Please be advised that researchers are using various surveillance and sampling techniques to monitor wolf activity, including the collection of hair snag samples on the island. Hair snags are blocks of wood with barbed wire on them. Research stations are flagged with tape. Please avoid research sites, and do not remove coastal wolf research equipment from the site. Human scent at these locations can cause wolves not to use them.
For additional information on the research study, or if you have information and knowledge, you are willing to share, or are interested in helping to gather information for this study, Lax Kw’alaams Fisheries staff welcomes your participation.
Please contact Katherine Butts, Senior Biologist at 778-884-9889.
