The Alpha Female Wolf: The Fierce Legacy of Yellowstone’s 06

Yellowstone’s 06 female was called “the most famous wolf in the world.” Her strength, beauty, and intelligence were unmatched, and thanks to her skillful choice of pack mates, hunting prowess, and dedication to protecting her pups, her family thrived. In this lecture based on the new book, The Alpha Female Wolf, award-winning author, renowned wolf researcher, and EC50 honoree Rick McIntyre turns his spotting scope on 06 and more remarkable female wolves, telling the dramatic true story of five generations of female leaders in Yellowstone National Park.

As Rick shows us, female wolves, not their male counterparts, are the true leaders of the pack. They choose who may mate with them and where their pack will hunt and raise pups. They manage relationships with neighboring packs and fiercely defend their families. The only opponent they cannot defeat is a human with a gun.

Join The Explorers Club on Monday, October 24th to learn about these magnificent animals living in our National Parks.

Streaming live here on explorers.org, our YouTube Channel, and our Facebook Live — Monday, October 24th at 7:00 pm ET.
