One of the last natural habitats for wolves is Alaska. This is because Alaska is such a big place and it has everything they need to survive. Wolves need things like a lot of food, water and a lot of room to move around. Alaska also has the smallest population of people in the United States.
Alaska is the largest state in the United States. It is a 586,000 square mile area. Wolves range on 85 percent of this area.
Alaska is so big that several wolf habitats are available.There is everything from rain forests to arctic tundra deserts.
Wolves live all over Alaska except on the following islands: Admiralty, Baranoff and Chichagot. There are fewer wolves along the northern and western coastal areas.
In 1998 as you read this, wolves are very common in Alaska. In prime habitat you might find a wolf every 25 miles or so.
