Echo - The Grand Canyon Wolf

Echo
"because she came back to the Grand Canyon like an Echo does"

gray wolf grand canyon AZGFD

Echo is the name given to a 3 year old, female Northern gray wolf who traveled hundreds of miles from the area where she was captured and collared near Cody, Wyoming, to the North Kaibab Plateau by the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. She was sighted by many lucky residents, Grand Canyon National Park staff, and tourists visiting the area in northern Arizona where she roamed in October and November 2014. She had made an incredible dispersal journey, likely in search of a mate and a territory to call her own. But she was the first, and only wolf to be in that part of Arizona in over 70 years, so she traveled on, and met her tragic fate by the bullet from a hunter's gun near Beaver, Utah, on December 28, 2014.

Echo's story was an inspiration for us all. She came to the excellent wolf habitat of the Grand Canyon region, and hopefully marked a trail for other dispersing wolves to follow. This page is a dedication to her memory, and a tribute to her life.
