The answer to the question? Fourteen wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone in 1995.

About Wolf Reintroduction:

In January 1995, U.S. and Canadian wildlife officials captured 14 wolves from multiple packs east of Jasper National Park, near Hinton, Alberta, Canada. These wolves arrived in Yellowstone in two shipments—January 12, 1995 (8 wolves) and January 20, 1995 (6 wolves). They were released into three acclimation pens—Crystal Creek, Rose Creek and Soda Butte Creek in the Lamar Valley in Northeast East Yellowstone National Park. In March 1995, the pens were opened and between March 21 and March 31, 1995 all 14 wolves were loose in Yellowstone.

Seventeen additional wolves captured in Canada arrived in Yellowstone in January 1996 and were released into the park in April 1996 from the Chief Joseph, Lone Star, Druid Peak and Nez Perce pens. These were the last wolves released into the park as officials believed that the natural reproduction and survival were sufficient to preclude additional releases.

Do you mean you can't figure out how to send an email to the contest address given? The exact process may vary depending on what email provider you are using, but if you use Gmail, click "Compose" and copy the email address (contest1@wolfquest.org) into the "To" field, then give the email a subject and enter the required information into the body of the email. Other providers will be similar, but may use different wording and have things in different locations.

If you're trying to find your own email address, if you go to your User Control Panel and then to the "Edit account settings" section of the Profile tab, the email address linked to your forum account will be listed there.

Oh, oops. I thought that since I emailed from the email address, I wouldn't have to add it, since I thought it would show when they got the email... should I send it again, but with my email address? Or would it be considered spam?

It states that valid entries need to include your email address, so I would assume that means you need to have it included in the body of the email. Possibly to cover situations where people emailed from an address different from the one they would have wanted the copy of the game sent to? Either way, it'd be a good idea to include it just to be safe.

I don't think it would be a problem if you sent it again, since if you did not include your email address the entry was invalid and the new email would not be a second valid entry. You could always make mention of that in your email, as well.
