Olympic National Park provides suitable reintroduction site for gray wolves, study finds
Aside from werewolves in the fictional “Twilight” series set near Forks, actual gray wolves haven’t inhabited Olympic National Park for almost a century. But a recent study found that the Olympics could be a suitable place to reintroduce the species.
The report, conducted by Oregon State University ecology professor William Ripple and postdoctoral faculty Christopher Wolf, looked at hundreds of potential “rewilding” sites — areas around the world where threatened large carnivores once lived and could be reintroduced.
