  • Description: WildSweden organises wildlife watching tours to increase the awareness of nature, and to give wild animals and wild nature an economical value for the local community. The return of the Wolves is a big issue in Sweden now. WildSweden works actively to track and monitor several Wolf packs in the Bergslagen forests. Since 2006 we have reported observations and collected droppings for the Scandinavian Wolf project that aims to monitor and learn more about the Wolf population.
