The Iberian wolf has been added to the endangered species list and the hunting fraternity are up in arms about it…. There is an article in English at the sur newspaper
There cant be a blanket ban on hunting though no? I would have thought that control of numbers would be important especially if they start to increase drastically in numbers over the next 10 years or so….September 28, 2021 at 6:41 am #1048Carl
And as expected 6 autonomous regions have declared that they will fight the new law protecting the wolf from hunting…. A bit odd that Andalucía has joined in as their wolf population is pretty dire to say the least…April 25, 2022 at 11:10 am #1287clive
I have updated the Iberian wolf information page at Wildside Holidays to add in the interpretation centre in the Sierra de Culebra:

I’m off to the Sierra Culebra next week. Has anyone got any tips of increasing my chance of seeing a wolf?
The Aliste valley is supposed to be a good place to look.
I say one once in the Pena de Francia area in the late 1990s and would love to see one again.July 21, 2022 at 4:36 pm #1414clive
I think that the recent fire has been devastating to the Sierra Culebra.
You could get in touch with these people to get better info though they told me recently that all their up coming trips were on hold… https://wildsideholidays.co.uk/wild-wolf-experience/

Some parts of Cantabria seem to be having a harder time that other so it looks like controlled hunting will be allowed in 2023….. Damage to livestock in the area is the reason.
Cantabria autoriza abatir lobos en tres zonas de la región por los “cuantiosos daños” a la ganadería
El Gobierno de Cantabria ha autorizado la extracción de ejemplares de lobo en los municipios de la Hermandad de Campoo de Suso, Polaciones, Tudanca y Los Tojos, además de en los terrenos de la Mancomunidad Campoo-Cabuérniga, ante los “cuantiosos y reiterados daños” a la ganadería extensiva que viene ocasionando el lobo en los últimos meses, y especialmente a lo largo del verano.
Breathe and try to be nice to people 🙂
