Unique images from Drenthe

These unique images, presented by RTV Drenthe, show us something that normally remains hidden in the darkness: the natural beauty and grace of a wolf in a winter setting. A rare and fascinating spectacle! Especially when you consider that you would never have been able to see this in the Drenthe landscape a few years ago.

A wild wolf, alone in the night, finds its way across the ice. In the quiet hours, captured by a wildlife camera, we see how the animal carefully takes its steps, sometimes almost dancing over the smooth surface.

An unexpected twist

At one point the wolf almost loses his balance, but quickly recovers. It is a rare glimpse of a wolf in the Netherlands. We encounter him more and more often and thanks to the unique images made by a wildlife camera, we can now safely view the wolf up close.

The vulnerable king of the wilderness

The return of the wolf in the Netherlands is a sign of a recovering nature, but it also brings challenges. Despite their growing numbers, each wolf remains valuable to population stability.

A difficult situation

Traffic accidents currently pose the greatest threat to these animals. The loss of almost 20 wolves in traffic in recent years is a heavy blow, especially given the relatively small population size in our country.

Protection is desperately needed

These deaths highlight the need for thoughtful conservation measures and awareness among road users to keep these majestic animals safe.

Where is the wolf actually located?

Wolves are true masters of migration. They cover great distances and their movements through the Netherlands show how adaptable these animals are. On the map you can see that most wolf packs are located in the Veluwe. But the wolves have also been seen near Eindhoven and Weert. It is therefore no surprise that a wolf has been seen in Drenthe.

Back and forth

Some wolves choose to leave the Netherlands again, probably because of the increasing crowds. This movement between countries emphasizes their need for vast, peaceful areas.

Learn from the wolf

These migration patterns give us valuable insights into wolf behavior. They teach us about the dynamics of their lives and the need to respect and protect their habitats.

Living together: Man and wolf

Of course, as nature lovers and great animal lovers, we are happy to see the wolf again in the Netherlands. But we understand that in such a small country there must also be room for such wild animals. The new Interprovincial Wolf Plan plays an important role in bringing humans and wolves together. This plan, expected in 2024, will include new strategies and guidelines to promote a harmonious coexistence between humans and wolves.
