From the Manitoba Co-operator:

Since the spring of 2016, Christina Prokopenko has been collecting data on the behaviour and population of wolves in Riding Mountain National Park (RMNP).

Prokopenko, who is a Vanier Scholar completing her doctoral thesis out of Memorial University in Newfoundland, undertook the research to better understand the ecology of RMNP’s estimated 70 to 75 wolves and their prey. Her method was to study wolves with GPS-equipped collars, to determine areas of intense use, indicated by clusters of points in a specific area over time.

It’s not uncommon to hear the howl of a lone wolf out in the wilderness surrounding Thompson, Man., but it’s not every day you hear thousands of people trying to imitate that sound all at once.

That’s exactly what happened in the northern Manitoba community on Thursday as the city broke the Guinness World Record for the largest number of people howling like a wolf, with 2,033 people participating in the howl.
