BE: Conservation: Wild baby wolves for Belgium

Wildlife experts in Belgium are getting excited to welcome the country’s first set of wild wolf cubs in more than 100 years.

Adult wolves were spotted in 2018 in the European country for the first time in over one hundred years, and experts have been keeping a close eye on them and hoping for babies.

Now a female wolf named Noella is expected to give birth to cubs very, very soon.

To protect the wolves hunting has been banned and wildlife rangers are out on patrol, making sure the animals are safe.

Wolves disappeared from most of Western Europe because of hunting, growing cities and more factories being built.

That’s why experts in Belgium are now excited and keen to protect the few that have returned.
