Mexican gray wolf count

In 2016, a team of state, federal and tribal officials began a two week count of the population of Mexican gray wolves that roams through the Apache and Gila national forests in New Mexico and Arizona. The interagency team conducts the population counts each winter to monitor the status of the endangered wolf species and gather data for future recovery efforts. While biologists count many wolves by flying over them in helicopters, some wolves are temporarily captured in order to be measured, processed and collared by biologists.
