On the Trail of the Iberian Wolf

Ecotourism is a low impact nature based tourism  that contributes to the conservation of the species and habitats through a monetary contribution to the preservation or creation of revenue  for local communities so that the community will value  and thus protect their wildlife heritage for future generations.
The Grupo Lobo organization offers you an ecotourism program that aims to promote the natural and cultural heritage associated with the wolves and raise awareness for the conservation of this endangered predator. This program aims to disseminate to the general public accurate and updated information about the wolves with scientific rigor, as well as offering unique opportunities for recreation in places of great scenic beauty and high cultural interest.
