The general director of Biodiversity and Natural Resources of the Community of Madrid, Luis del Olmo, has assured that "attacks on protected species are inconceivable in the 21st century and that the wolf is a species "that has maximum protection in the Community of Madrid and contributes to the sustainability of our ecosystems".

"This is a project that is good for all people of Madrid and we will continue with it as it will allow us to know the customs of this protected species in detail, improve the knowledge of the Iberian wolf for its conservation and thus be able to study in detail the associated damages to livestock and implement preventive measures with maximum guarantees, "he said.

Thanks to this location system, which are framed in the Management Plan for the Wolf of the Community of Madrid, Environmental technicians will also be able to analyze the trail that wolves leave through their feces and thus be able to examine them and know more thoroughly their eating habits and thus avoid or prevent attacks on livestock and influence the preventive actions necessary to the cohabitation of cattle and wolf populations.
