Occurrence (occupied grid cells) of wolves in Germany in monitoring year 2017/18

Please note: in maps or query modules only important key words or the legend are translated.

Nachweise gem. Monitoringstandards = Evidence according to monitoring standards
Rasterzelle mit nachgewiesener Reproduktion = Grid cell with proven reproduction

The occurrence map of the wolf in Germany is based on data that have been classified as evidence (e.g. photo, genetic sample) or confirmed evidence (e.g. documented track dog). References that are not verifiable (visual observations, vocalizations) or not sufficiently documented are not included in the map display.

A 10x10 km grid cell is considered occupied (green) for a monitoring year if it contains at least one wolf detection or three independent confirmed wolf clues. Cells, in which the first reproduction proof of the respective monitoring year was furnished for a herd, are marked with a diamond. If wolfsterritories adjoin each other, reproductions of more than one pack can also be found in a cell.

The monitoring year refers to the period from May 1 to April 30 of the following year. In this way, it takes into account the biology and reproductive rhythm of the wolf.

Only data with the SCALP ratings C1 and C2 are shown.

SCALP - Status and Conservation of the Alpine Lynx Population

C1: Facts, evidence ("hard facts"):
Live trap, dead trap, genetic detection, photo, telemetry location

C2: Confirmed information ("soft facts – confirmed"):
events confirmed by an experienced person such as a crack or trace
