Episode 45: Chat with Dr. John and Mary Theberge - What Good is a Wolf? Part VI
In this, the final episode of my six-part series on wolf research in Algonquin Park, I have the pleasure of chatting with long-time wolf researchers Dr. John and Mary Theberge. Today we talk about their sense of where things are at these days regarding the plight of wolves both in Ontario, British Columbia, and the USA’s Yellowstone National Park. John and Mary as you know from episodes 3 & 4 picked up the baton from Douglas Pimlott in the mid-1960s. Their extensive work on wolf vocalization amongst other topics was groundbreaking. In addition, they were instrumental in bringing to all of our attention the extent of the winter migration of deer outside of Algonquin Park. After much controversy, this eventually led to a total wolf-hunting ban in all the townships surrounding the park.
