Wolf occurrence in Germany

On the following pages we present recent information on wolf occurrence in Germany. The data is collected and also published by the federal states. In addition to this, the DBBW project facilitates compiling these data and presenting them to the public.

The section “Evidences in Germany” includes a map with all grid cells that have been recorded as occupied in the monitoring year 2018/19 through evidence of wolf presence or confirmed hints to wolf presence, respectively, in accordance with the monitoring standards.

In the category “Confirmed territories”, all confirmed territories (packs, pairs, territorial Individuals) of all past and evaluated monitoring years (including 2018/19) are available. Further, the development in the current monitoring year (2019/20) is shown. These data should be considered as preliminary, as they will be conclusively evaluated at the yearly national wolf monitoring meeting in September 2020 in the context of the up-to-date state of knowledge for the monitoring report 2019/20.

The section “Dead wolves” provides current information about all wolves that have been found dead in Germany.
