New System Can Identify Individual Wolf Howls with 100 Percent Accuracy

A new sound recognition system allows researchers to identify individual wolves by just their howls with perfect accuracy.

Scientists at Nottingham Trent University developed a new code for improved sound analysis which makes it possible for them to distinguish the howls of Eastern gray wolves by the unique pitch and volume in each of their howls.

The technology will be a boon for researchers of wolves as the creatures can have a range of up to 1,000 square miles and cover as many as 30 miles in a day, making them very difficult to track.

“We already knew that wolves, like humans, had distinct voices, and now we are able to identify them with 100% accuracy without ever even seeing them,” said researcher Holly Root-Gutteridge…
