Wolves in the Bieszczady National Park

In the latest issue of Roczniki Bieszczadzkie we have published the results of wolf monitoring in the Bieszczady National Park and the Park’s buffer zone. In the years 2006 – 2020, we were monitoring 4 wolf family groups living in the area of 903 km2 using tracking, telemetry and photo-traps. The number of wolves ranged from 15 to 45 individuals, with densities of 2.6-3.0 individuals/km2. The monitored packs were raising 4 to 10 pups. Wolves hunted mainly deer (84%), wild boars (10%) and roe deer (5%) and occasionally small mammals.
