The Wolf Alpine Group is an informal group of specialists in wild animal research and administration. They meet every two years in one of the Alpine countries to exchange information and to discuss and make decisions concerning wolf monitoring. The discussions are always summarized in a published report called “Alpine Wolf Workshop”. The report shows retrospectively the status of the wolf population the distribution and number of packs in the Alps. The organisation of the meeting and the coordination of the report is done by a different one of the participating countries every time. The reports are published on the LCIE website. KORA organises the workshop and edits the report when the meeting takes place in Switzerland.
