Description

Back from Italy through the Mercantour, I propose you to accompany me for a walk in this wild massif, on the tracks of this mysterious and often misunderstood animal.


Between tales and legends and proven facts, we will try to disentangle what is fantasy and reality by going closer to him, on his territory; how did the wolf evolve with men?


What is its current and past impact on livestock herds? how is a pack organized, what territory does it control? Natural return or reintroduction?


Where can we find it in France and in Europe ? Is it dangerous for humans?


We will try to find the clues of its presence during our outing while being interested in the animals that cohabit in this exceptional natural space that is the Mercantour: chamois, ibex, marmots, vultures and eagles...


And even if we have few chances to see it, you will be able, at the end of our escapade in mountain, to make you an enlightened opinion thanks to a better understanding of this extraordinary animal.
