What do you do if you see a wolf?
Grab a camera.
That's the advice of Oregon Wild Wildlands and Wildlife Advocate Rob Klavins, who stopped by KATU-TV's long-running daytime talk program AM Northwest to get viewers caught up on the status of Journey, Oregon's most famous wolf, who left the state earlier this year in search of a mate in Northern California.
Rob also talked with hosts Helen Raptis and Dave Anderson about the overall status of Oregon's wolves, particularly the Imnaha pack in the northeastern corner of the state, and dispelled some of the common myths still surrounding wolves.
Part of what made Journey's trek across Oregon possible were the Wilderness and roadless areas he traveled through. At times, it seemed as though Journey had a map of Oregon's wild areas, passing through the Soda Mountain Wilderness, Klamath Basin and Sky Lakes Wilderness just south of Crater Lake on his way to Northern California.
Earlier this year Oregon Wild helped name Journey with the help of a children's art and naming contest which saw thousands upon thousands of entries from excited wolf and wildlife fans around the U.S.
