“The skills for tracking animals once made the difference between life and death, and now is somewhat of a lost art. Understanding subtle differences in our surroundings and how we perceive them will reveal the secret lives of animals living around us.” —Sarah Boles
Sarah Boles, a wildlife technician with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, will share some of these subtle differences and shed some light on the natural world in this virtual Wolf Awareness Week presentation.
Sarah Boles began learning how to interpret wolf signs in the early 1990s. She mentored in the field, which was followed by training sessions with Jim Halfpenny and other experienced wildlife trackers. She has been working as a wildlife technician for the WIDNR on the wolf program since 1995. She continues to hone her skills and find delight exploring the environments she finds herself in.
