About These Wolves:
These photos represent ten years of L. David Mech’s study and photography of the wild wolves living in the high artic of Canada’s Ellesmere island.
Living in a land that is shrouded inn darkness six months of the year, these wolves are not accustomed to humans as their counterparts living in lower Canada and the 48 states.
Because they are so remote, these wolves have not suffered centuries of abuse at the hands of humans, and thus have not learned to fear them. The result is that Dr. Mech was able to study these wild wolves more closely and intimatly then any other wolves.
