Wolf year 2021 - photo trap footage

The year 2021 is coming to an end. These twelve months have been a very productive time for us, in which we have managed to collar two more wolves (Scyzor and Geralt), we engaged new people that joined the Fund, we updated our website, and published many informative and educational notes, posts, and videos about wolves.

We hope that in the next year, we will further develop our monitoring program in the Świętokrzyskie region.

We would also like to wish you many successes, prosperity and fulfillment of all your wishes in the coming year! May the new year bring peace and hope. We would like to thank you for supporting our Fund and we hope that in the coming year we will still be able to count on your support!

As a summary of our monitoring efforts, please see a compilation of photo trap videos presenting wolves from our region.
