The research that Adolph Murie began in 1939 continues to this day, making Denali’s wolves one of the longest-studied wild wolf populations in the world. Current research efforts now involve radio collaring wolves from each wolf pack living within the park in order to locate them within the vast landscape of Denali by homing in on each collar’s radio signal.
