Hi
The most of the people visit  "Sierra de la Culebra" in Zamora for wolves, no doubt its a nice destination but in the north of Spain in lonely valleys exist good populations of wolves living in beautiful mountains.
In this areas dozens of wolves are killed every year by hunters with no benefit for nature and local population, for us is important that nature lovers knows this wolves and come to watch them, and show to the administration that this animals could be a good economic source for this areas.
You can watch some videos from the cantabrian mountains here.

Interesting.  Thanks for that.  I didn't know that they were so common in that area.

Cheers.
