Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s ​Collared Gray Wolf Activity Map​ will help inform the public, recreationists and livestock​ producers on where wolves have been in the past 30 days or so. This map will be updated with new information on a monthly basis, produced on the fourth Wednesday of every month, and will reflect data for the prior month, give or take several days.

These maps are created using GPS collar data collected from all ​​collared wolves in Colorado.  

About the GPS collar data

  • Currently, the collars are programmed to record a position every four hours. 
  • Once four locations have been recorded, the packet of four locations is then transmitted via satellite to CPW biologists. 
  • The frequency of both position recording and transmission of the data can be delayed by a number of factors such as dense cloud cover, closed terrain, etc. 
  • By looking at the data, CPW staff can learn where wolves have been, but they cannot tell where wolves are at a current point in time, nor can they predict where the wolves will go. 
  • To protect the wolves, specific GPS data will not be shared.
