Grey wolves are extremely stealthy creatures! They hunt in packs by outrunning and outlasting ungulate prey. This little grey wolf’s diet will include animals TWICE its size including bison, moose, and elk. Wolves also hunt smaller mammals like beavers, rodents, and hares.
Did you also know that grey wolves are excellent communicators?! They use their body language, scent marking, and noises such as growling, barking, and howling to convey messages to one another. For example, a pack will howl to solidify pack bonds and warn other wolf packs to stay away from the territory.
We hope to see this little grey wolf pop up on our camera traps more often!

Introducing our newest Grizzly Gulch resident!
In November 2022, we asked for your help in naming our resident Grizzly Gulch bobcat. Although it was a split decision between all names, our winner is…drumroll please 🥁…
Shadow has spent quite a lot of time exploring the Grizzly Gulch refuge. He tends to frequent areas where water and lots of brush are nearby. Bobcats are very stealthy species and are rarely ever spotted while out on the Creature Trail. But, thanks to the hidden Grizzly Gulch camera traps, we’ve been lucky enough to spot Shadow a few times and introduce him to all of you!
Stay tuned for more awesome updates about Shadow and all of our other Grizzly Gulch residents!

Hey Wild Alliance! Chris and Martin here to help kick off this spring with your first Creature Hero challenge of 2023!
We challenge you to use your Creature Planting Powers to build a garden in your backyard or community space! This garden can be as big or small as you like. Once you have planted your seeds and spotted the first signs of sprouting, send photos along with one fact about each plant you chose to add to your garden to email@example.com!
We have added a few awesome examples above of gardens that other Creature Heroes have made in their backyard for inspiration.
Let the planting begin!

These images were taken by Grizzly Gulch’s camera trap network. These cameras are positioned at strategic wildlife hubs at the refuge and are activated when they detect motion.
A moose ventures into the forest after a huge snowstorm hit Grizzly Gulch! She is probably in search of a tasty treat to snack on. Twigs are her favorite snack!
A very fluffy coyote enjoys a bit of sunshine while venturing through the refuge, and is definitely not camera-shy! He definitely stopped so we could get this awesome photo!
Our newest Grizzly Gulch resident bobcat, Shadow, made a famous appearance on our camera traps just after breaching the forest and onto one of many Grizzly Gulch’s game trails! Who knows where he will pop up next!
This Grizzly bear is very aware of its surroundings at night and checks to make sure no one is lurking behind him. Do you have any guesses as to how much this bear weighs?
A young male deer sniffs out food just before crossing a snowy creek! You can tell it’s currently flurrying at Grizzly Gulch by all the snow covering his back! Be sure to zoom in on his small antlers!
This male elk stays hidden behind the tree line just waiting for the perfect moment to grab a drink of water. He may be keeping a close eye out for predators before he puts his head down!
Make sure to build your pollinator garden with an adult!
