Dordogne river and surrounding area, Southern France

Wolves are slowly returning to the area. with careful management, they can be a great draw for tourism without damaging livestock to mcuh

The Dordogne river is 300 kilometres long, and is a relatively healthy river which means that much wildlife lives in and around the river. sturgeons, salmon, otters, swans, cormorants, egrets, and kingfishers are seen along much of its length.

The area surrounding the river is close to the Spanish and Italian border, and as such has got small numbers of wolves. Should they not be hunted as they arrive, the wolves are likely to thrive in the area, due to the large number of herbivores that live around here. Furthermore, with careful management, it is going to have a positive impact on the local economy.
