Stamps on Fauna Wolf -Slovenia 2022

The wolf is the largest member of the family Canidae. It is the predator with the greatest impact on herbivore populations in the northern hemisphere. Its predatory way of life and conflicts with human populations as a result of its attacks on livestock meant that by the end of the nineteenth century its numbers had dramatically reduced across most of Europe and North America. In some areas it was eradicated entirely. Slovenia’s wolves are part of the Dinaric-Balkan population, covering the area from the Eastern Alps in north-eastern Italy to the mountains of Greece and Bulgaria.

Slovenia issued a Minisheet on wolf on 23 Sep 2022.
