The white crowned sparrow. You’d think it’d get tired singing what seemed to be around the clock while the long spring days would wind on. These guys were singing when we woke up and singing when we went to bed in AK. Thank you white crowned sparrow! •
Check out the recent article in the @nytimes about Wolf Management in Alaska. Working with @yukoncharleywolves on one of the longest running wolf studies in AK. Link in my bio. 🐺 _________________________________________________________ #wildlifephotography @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #wolves
Stoked to see coverage of our project in @nytimes Science. Working with @yukoncharleywolves to educate folks about these amazing animals. 🙌. Read the article at the link in my bio. ___________________________________ @natgeocreative @nytimes
It can be hard to put a face with a name when you are talking about animals that live in remote parts of Alaska. These wolves of Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve have never been photographed before, let alone seen by people other than the occasional biologist. The subject of study for the last 22 years, the National Park Service has been dedicated to learning as much as they can about these animals. •••
From the @nationalparkservice Press Release: "National Park Service researchers monitored wolf population dynamics for 22 years (1993–2014) in order to assess how two large-scale wolf control programs, which had the primary goal of increasing the size of the Fortymile caribou herd, affected a wolf population located within the adjacent protected area of Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. The study is one of only four in North America conducted for this length of time."

The Yukon-Charley Rivers preserve is located in the eastern interior of Alaska, bordering the Yukon territory and Canada. Many of the regions creeks and rivers were explored for placer gold in the 19th century, but access to the region can be difficult. There are no roads in the park, requiring that your transportation be by foot, air, boat or a combination of all three. Happy to be collaborating with @yukoncharleywolves to help tell the stories of the wolves that make this wild place their home.
