How long will Washington’s wolf population continue to grow?
Washington’s wolf population has shown eleven consecutive years of growth, according to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (WDFW’s) 2019 annual year-end wolf report, released in spring of 2020. But will the wolf population consistently continue to grow, and for how long? Will the state, or areas within it, hit a “saturation” point for wolves? Will there be years when the overall number of wolves in Washington decreases? Experts in the field say we can look to wolf ecology for answers.
