Wilderness preservation and the conservation of wolves are inextricably linked. Areas with thriving wolf populations tend to have intact wilderness. Habitat loss and fragmentation is occurring across Canada. Such land use changes are currently threatening the ability of many areas in Canada to sustain wolf populations. Wilderness preservation requires an understanding of the ecological needs of indicator species such as wolves.
WAI provides critical financial and logistical support to this scientific research project. WAI uses the results of scientific research as a knowledge base for educational and public outreach programs.
