It is a way to appreciate what we have accomplished. It’s also a reminder that we are getting closer to our goals. Even with our children and pets, we celebrate our small victories.
Do you remember the first time that your baby said his first word? How about your pet’s first birthday?
They are truly special moments, just like this tiny wolf’s accomplishment.
Just a few days ago, Voyagers Wolf Project celebrated a small victory when they saw, or should we say, heard a tiny wolf pup’s first howl.
The VWP’s trail camera was in the right location, and what their camera captured was really something to celebrate.
Voyageurs Wolf Project
The VWP or Voyageurs Wolf Project is a research project from the University of Minnesota. Their research started with one question – what do wolves do during the summer?
According to their website:
“Our goal is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the summer ecology of wolves in the Greater Voyageurs Ecosystem in northern Minnesota. Specifically, we want to understand the predation behavior and reproductive ecology (e.g., number of pups born, where wolves have dens, etc) of wolves during the summer.”
A loud howl from a tiny wolf
In the said video, we see a wolf pup approaching the trail camera and after making his tiny presence known, he started howling.
This little wolf pup may be small, but his howls are very loud.
“Listen to some of this wolf pup’s first howls from only a few weeks ago,” VWP wrote on their YouTube video description.
They also posted a little warning about the tiny wolf pup being really loud despite being only 4-weeks old.
It’s not something that you would see or hear every day.
