Wolves in the Picos de Europa

Monday, February 1st, 2010
Lisa has written this well researched article on her excellent Picos de Europa page on the population and status of  wolves in the Picos de Europa, the only national park in Spain where they are present:
…an estimate of 5 packs within the park and its immediate surrounding areas. Of these family groups they estimate that each consists of between 5-9 family members, giving a minimum 25 and maximum of 45 individuals, not including the few probable loners. These figures are far below those claimed by local farmers.
