Although this project is only an assignment, it is expected that you use real world scenarios, methods and tools.
Your presentation must include the following:
- Wolf Biology (Example: Do wolves sweat?)
- Wolf Behavior or Ethology (Example: How do pack structure and dynamics influence dispersal?)
- Wolf Ecology (Example: What is the relationship between the wolf and the caribou in Alberta?)
- Relationship with Humans (Example: Does non-lethal control prevent livestock loss?)
- Establish the method of research you plan to utilize: investigational, hypothesis-testing, or opportunistic.
- Use maps to illustrate your study area (Examples on Pages 11-13)
5. Specific tools you will implement to facilitate the study
- This may involve some investigation into what tools are available to facilitate the study of wolves. Examples of available tools: radio telemetry, observation, track surveys or public surveys.
Use a Web 2.0 medium to present your proposed wolf research project. Below is a starter list of tools you may use to create your presentation. You may even combine one or more tools!
Hint: Incorporate Google Earth into your presentation to highlight the geographic region of your study or locations of wolves you plan to track.
Images and video must be used to enhance your presentation.
Give credit to images and files you have used. Please be conscious of copyright infringement. If you are not sure what that means, here is a video tutorial to help you:
The bibliography must include at least five (5) sources with one source being a book. Make sure to cite your sources in APA format.

2. Give a summary of your project:
- What is your topic and main objective?
- How does it relate to wolves?
- Why is this issue important?
- Is your question/hypothesis easy or hard to address? Why?
- To meet your objective, where there other questions that had to be answered first? What were they?
