Indigo Pack

Area of Known Wolf Activity

Indigo AKWA

Current Indigo AKWA map (pdf)

Within Areas of Known Wolf Activity (AKWA) certain preventative measures are recommended to minimize wolf-livestock conflicts. Though not required, non-lethal measures are important to reduce depredation. Assistance with these proactive measures is available from USFWS, ODFW and the ODA Compensation Plan. Wolves west of Highways 395-78-95 are federally listed. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, not ODFW, regulates all management related to harassment and lethal take where wolves are federally listed. Information about specific wolf-livestock conflicts can be found on the Wolf and Livestock Updates page.

April 15, 2020 – In 2019, the Indigo Pack produced three pups that survived to the end of year and was counted as a breeding pair.  During the winter count one separate wolf was counted in the northern part of the AKWA.


March 21, 2019 – A new Area of Known Wolf Activity (AKWA) has been designated by ODFW in the eastern portion of the Indigo Unit (Douglas and Lane Counties). Wolf activity has been reported by the public in this area for several years and biologists found tracks of multiple wolves (suggesting wolves were resident in the area) in late 2018. Trail camera images of three wolves were captured by a US Fish and Wildlife Service remote camera on Feb. 20, 2019 in the Umpqua National Forest.

The Indigo Wolves were not counted as a pack or breeding pair in 2018.
