The state D-N-R is looking for volunteers to help find wolves and other carnivores this winter. 

The state has been monitoring the animals since 1995.  Last year, about 150 volunteers surveyed about eight-thousand miles of roads.  The volunteers look for tracks as they drive slowly on isolated roads.  They also use snowmobiles, cross-country skis, and snow-shoes.  The new volunteers will need to attend tracking and wolf-ecology classes.  More information is available at the D-N-R's Web site, accessible at Wisconsin-Dot-Gov.
