Wolf Program Updates

March 11, 2014

The final 2013 Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Annual Report is available online. It includes the 2013 update for Oregon’s Wolf Population. ODFW documented a minimum of 64 wolves in 8 packs, including 4 breeding pairs for 2013 (compared to 46 wolves in 6 packs with 6 breeding pairs in 2012).

A research section has been added to the wolf webpages. The page is based on the Wolf Literature Review and Research Recommendations presented to the Fish and Wildlife Commission in March 2013. ODFW has also initiated a partnership with Oregon State University to provide a Ph. D. student to study wolf-cougar interactions and wolf predation rates on northeastern Oregon ungulates. This project is expected to be completed in 2018.

Finally, additional wolf photos from 2013 and 2014 have been added to the wolf photo gallery.

Wolf Management

Wolves throughout Oregon are protected by the state Endangered Species Act (ESA). The Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Plan and associated technical rules guide all ODFW wolf related activities.

Wolves west of Hwys 395-78-95 also remain protected by the federal ESA. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the lead management agency for wolves that occur west of Hwys 395-78-95.

Wolves and Livestock

The goal of Oregon’s Wolf Conservation and Management Plan is to ensure the conservation of gray wolves as required by Oregon law while protecting the social and economic interests of all Oregonians. Minimizing wolf-livestock conflict and reducing livestock losses to wolves is an important part of the Wolf Plan.
