The Wolf migration is an interesting phenomenon that occurs during the winter season.
Wolves leave their winter dens for new winter grounds where they can feed and re-enter the snow season. It is during this time that many believe Wolf migration is triggered. Wolves will travel long distances to reach a warmer area of the country, because they tend to be cold-blooded and need to consume large amounts of food to stay healthy.
When Wolf migration begins, they look to reach warm areas where the vegetation is growing and they can survive by hunting. However, Wolf migration is triggered by a variety of environmental factors and Wolf populations will change along the way. In addition, climate change will affect the intensity and duration of the yearly Wolf migration. As you read on, we’ll examine the causes of Wolf migration, how it affects conservation efforts and what you can do to ensure your local area is fully prepared for this year’s migration.
Wolf Migration due to changes in areas occurs when the temperature in an area changes significantly. The Wolf is sensitive to cold weather, so if there is a reduction in wintertime temperatures, they will likely become noticeably more active in the spring. Activity increases as temperatures rise, so by monitoring temperatures you can watch for the beginning of the wolf migration season in your area.
