Oregon is currently home to 21 known gray wolf packs, with a minimum number of 175 adult wolves statewide

Definition of a wolf pack in Oregon:

In Oregon a pack is defined as 4 or more wolves traveling together in winter, while a breeding pair is defined as an adult male and female wolf that produce at least two pups which survive through the end of the year.

In Oregon, the mean pack territory size is estimated at 268 square miles. These ranges typically overlap slightly, as shown by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife map below.

Gray wolves were federally delisted in January 2021. They have been delisted from the Oregon Endangered Species Act statewide since November 2015, but they are still considered a special status game mammal and protected by a statute throughout the state. Gray wolves in Oregon are managed under the Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Plan
