The author discusses aspects of conservation in biology that focus on the wild wolf named OR-7 which made history by roaming across the borders in western states. He mentions that biologists fiited the wolf with a GPS collar and was allowed to walk miles of distances to find a mate. The author believes that wolves alter their habitats but hopes that OR-7 will have a successful and productive journey.
