Dave Mech Following Wolves

Detailed Description

Late in the evening, two wolves make use of the trail that leads to the head of the fiord. Studying wolves in the High Arctic allows scientists to follow the wolves during their travels, assuming the scientists can keep up. All-terrain vehicles are needed, and the 24-hour daylight at this time of year is critical. While this trail and the barren landscape help the scientists to follow the wolves, the scientists cannot track the wolves to all places at all times or throughout the year. The radio collar will help the scientists to get some of the information they are missing.
