The Lookout Pack was the first confirmed wolf pack in Washington since the extermination of gray wolves in the 1930’s. The Lookout wolves are genetically related to wolves from BC or Alberta, which means they are not related to the wolves from the reintroduction efforts in the Rockies. They have continued to endure despite losses from poaching and wildfire.

In late 2014 it was reported that due to a wildfire known as the Carlton Complex Fire, the Lookout Pack had lost several new pups. Fortunately, the Lookout Pack still had it’s breeding pair and at least two other adult or yearling wolves in addition to one surviving pup.

In February 2016 remote cameras captured images of three sets of wolf tracks belonging to members of the Lookout Pack.
