Carnivore survey blocks

The state has been divided up into survey blocks where wolves and other carnivores are, or are likely to occur. There may be a block in your area or where you visit often.

Each trained tracker is assigned a survey block of about 200 square miles. The survey block is designated by a system of roads or natural boundaries such as lakes and rivers. Not all portions of the survey block will contain suitable habitat for forest carnivores. The tracker is responsible for surveying the forested areas of his or her block for forest carnivores. Surveys are conducted by slowly driving the survey block one to three days after fresh snowfalls. All recent sets of tracks of medium and large forest carnivores are recorded along these snow-covered roads.
