For over 20 years I've been collecting stories, photographs, interviews, out of print books and researching various aspects of the human history of Algonquin Park in Ontario Canada. In other words, capturing voices from the past. In the fall of 2020, I launched my podcast 'Algonquin Defining Moments' to both complement my published books but also to continue my mission of sharing stories, recollections, traditions, landmarks and other fun Algonquin Park human heritage curiosities. In this way that those who share my passion for everything Algonquin Park can listen to snippets of the park and its people while commuting, walking, cooking, working around the house or even just meditating on the back deck. Enjoy! Gaye Clemson

Episode 45: Chat with Dr. John and Mary Theberge - What Good is a Wolf? Part VI
In this, the final episode of my six-part series on wolf research in Algonquin Park, I have the pleasure of chatting with long-time wolf researchers Dr. John and Mary Theberge. Today we talk about their sense of where things are at these days regarding the plight of wolves both in Ontario, British Columbia, and the USA’s Yellowstone National Park. John and Mary as you know from episodes 3 & 4 picked up the baton from Douglas Pimlott in the mid-1960s. Their extensive work on wolf vocalization amongst other topics was groundbreaking. In addition, they were instrumental in bringing to all of our attention the extent of the winter migration of deer outside of Algonquin Park. After much controversy, this eventually led to a total wolf-hunting ban in all the townships surrounding the park.
This musical interlude is another wolf track called “The Beckoning Sea” from Dan Gibson’s Solitudes Legend of the Wolf CD, and brought to you with the approval of Digital Funding LLC. Solitudes music can be found where ever you get your music streaming.
