State gets grant for wolf management
    Idaho Fish and Game has accepted a $50,000 grant from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to assist with its wolf management plan.
    A news release from the foundation states: “The funds will increase IDFG’s knowledge of interactions between wolves and elk, and expand the radio-collar program to help managers gain a better understanding of pack and territory size, home range, and other biological traits and actions of the wolf in order to better implement effective management techniques.
    Since 1989, the foundation has invested nearly $664,000 in research grants to advance scientific understanding of wolves, wolf interactions with other species, and overall wolf management. The total includes more than $200,000 in science grants in the past five years. Most of the contributions paid for independent research by leading universities, state and federal wildlife conservation agencies and tribes.
    The foundation previously awarded 2013 grants to Montana and Wyoming to assist with wolf management in those states.
