Wolf and Wildlife Studies


Wolf & Wildlife Studies is an organization owned and operated by Jay Mallonee, and is dedicated to educating the public about the environment. This occurs through ongoing field research of northwest Montana's wolves, including the nine year study of the Fishtrap wolf pack, presenting the facts about hunting wolves in Montana, and this web site. The book "Timber - A Perfect Life" can also be purchased via this site, and background information about the book and Timber herself is provided. Publications of current and past studies can be downloaded for free: wolf pack behavior never before documented; Tenino, a wild wolf placed into captivity that suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); and the behavior of summering gray whales off the coast of northern California.

Timber - A Perfect LifeActionLine Magazine Articles
ActionLine is the magazine published by Friends of Animals, and I have written articles for them for several years. Most of these articles have been about the wolf issues here in Montana and my research. However, the curent article describes my meeting with the lead wolf managers at the California Department of Fish & Wildlife and the main topics we had discussed - in this case trophic cascading. They wanted a scientist's point of view regarding their future wolf management, and we had a frank and straightforward discussion.

The study of the Fishtrap pack is part of a larger concept called Project HOWL (Helping Our Wolves Live). It is a blend of education and research to increase the public's awareness of wolves here in northwest Montana, and to offer a more accurate view of how these animals fit into the environment. This includes the study of wolf behavior, public presentations and working with local ranchers to monitor the presence of wolves. Project HOWL is my response to the negative attitude displayed by some of the pubic toward wolves and to help counter the general ignorance about these animals and their behavior.

Project HOWL has proven that people from diverse backgrounds, i.e., hunters, ranchers, students, biologists, and the general public can work together toward a better understanding of our surrounding natural environment. This web site will provide you with some background information about these and other subjects, along with photos and video of the Fishtrap pack. Thank you for visiting this site.
