Review for International Wolf Center, Ely, MN, USA
As a board member of the International Wolf Center, I have worked with Dr. David Mech since 1990. His incomparable experience comes from 55 years of wolf research, being a member of the Eastern Timber Wolf Recovery Team and the Rocky Mountain Wolf Recovery Team and a former member Mexican Wolf Recovery Team. He authored the first Red Wolf Recovery Plan. He has written nine books and three scientific monographs pertaining to wolves and has authored 300-plus scientific articles about wolves and wolf prey. Dr. Mech collaborates with wolf biologists all over the world as Chair of the Wolf Specialist Group of the International Union of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) of the World Conservation Union. Although Dr. Mech founded the International Wolf Center and supports it in many incredible ways, he is not a spokesperson for the Center. Dr. Mech speaks about wolves based on his and other scientists' research and for his own agency, the U.S. Geological Survey.
To understand wolf biology, it is essential, but not always easy, to learn the factual, unbiased information that science provides. The International Wolf Center is very fortunate to have Dr. Mech and his associates, who are the world’s leading wolf researchers, as resources for the information we share with the public about the real wolf.
