Dr. Lu Carbyn states that Wolves are the largest member of the dog family - known scientifically as Canids. They have a wide distribution in the northern hemisphere and still technically inhabit about 85% of Canada. So, are wolves an endangered species? Dr. Lu Carbyn, Past President and current Vice-President of of Nature Alberta and currently an adjunct professor at the University of Alberta states that there are approximately 600,000 wolves inhabiting the world, mainly in the northern hemisphere and almost 45,000 live in Canada, of which approximately 9,000 live in Ontario.
