Project Description

In order to obtain data on the distribution and behavior of the Iberian wolf in the study area(Mountains of O Xistral and surroundings), a methodology different from previous studiescarried out in the province of Lugo is used where the IKA indexes do not represent a tool toconfirm the presence of the groups, but a method prior to the photo-trapping of specimenswith which more accurate data is obtained and that would allow to assess the populationtrends of the Canis lupus signatus in the area. It has been confirmed the existence of three 3packs and other 3 are pending to be corroborated as independent groups. After a meticulousstudy of these, we were able to reach common conclusions, such as the presence of analpha breeding couple in each pack.
