Exhibition on wolves in the Netherlands

This video is called Young Wolves Filmed Using Remote Camera! – Snow Wolf Family And Me – BBC.

Until 31 December 2016, there is an exhibition about wolves in the natural history museum in Tilburg, the Netherlands. The name of the exhibition is De Ware Wolf, The Real Wolf. The exhibition is because, after being extinct in the Netherlands for some 150 years, wolves are coming back now.

I saw the exhibition on 4 July 2016. There is information on wildlife everywhere in the museum, even at unexpected places. In the restaurant, there is a plaque about how giraffes eat. In the toilets, there is information about dung beetles; and about yak dung used as fuel in Tibet. The museum building used to be a technical school building.

The wolf exhibition shows not only wolves, but also their prey animals and information about them. Among them are wood mice. The exhibition points out that if a wolf would eat only wood mice, then it would need 140 of them a day to survive.

The background music of the exhibition is Peter and the Wolf, by Sergei Prokofiev.

We came especially to this museum for another exhibition there, about animals in the art of Hieronymus Bosch. So, stay tuned!

WWF reward after finding dead she-wolf

TODAY, 15:26

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in Germany offers a reward to catch the culprit who last month shot a wolf. The wolf was found in the woods near Görlitz in eastern Germany. WWF proposes 25,000 euros for the information that leads to the killer.

The German WWF is tired of wolves being killed illegally. The wolf is a strictly protected species in Germany since 1989. Since 2009, eighteen have been slain. Poachers rarely run into trouble.

The punishment for killing a wolf in Germany is imprisonment of up to five years or a fine. Late last year, about 350 wolves lived in the wild in Germany.

Both animals have bounced back from the brink of extinction in Europe thanks to strong protection under EU Nature laws, but they are still at risk. We are campaigning to ensure that Europe’s beauties of nature are effectively protected.

Wolf spotted in Netherlands for first time in over 100 years

13 March 2015

A wolf has been seen in the Netherlands for the first time in over a century, with footage showing the predator trotting around near a railway track in Noord-Sleen.

Then, that wolf went back to its native Germany; where a truck killed it.

Today, Dutch radio reported that this wolf is coming back to the Netherlands. Later this year, it will be included in the collection of Naturalis museum in Leiden.
