Oregon is currently home to 22 known gray wolf packs, with a minimum number of 158 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 have been delisted from the Oregon Endangered Species Act statewide. They remain protected by the Federal Endangered Species Act in most of Oregon, except for the area east of Pendleton/Burns. View the ODFW map of the gray wolf protection zones for more details.
