The citizen science wolf project has an excellent website yellowstonewolf.org. On it you can find current information about all the park's wolf packs, individual wolves and pack histories. This isn't real time, but is much better than waiting for the Wolf Project's report that comes out a year late. The citizen science project also solicits sightings and photographs from people who see or photograph wolves in the park.

The Lamar Canyon Pack's "06 female," 832F, is the subject of a program that airs on "National Geographic Wild" January 19th. Check local listings. There are no credits for this program yet, but I am told much of its cinematography is from Bob Landis. The program's title is "She Wolf" which gives one pause, but if it is from Landis it will be well worth watching even with the sound off. Bob showed a considerable amount of his 06 footage at one of Jim Halfpenny's Naturalist Evening programs this past winter and it was terrific.

832F was the alpha female of the Lamar Canyon Pack. She was legally harvested along with the pack's beta male in last winter's Wyoming wolf hunt. This resulted in the Lamar Canyon Pack essentially falling apart. 06's death became something of a cause celebre amongst wolfers.
