The success of the story of wolf recovery in North America lies in the dedicated work of many who work to give wolves their rights on the landscape. Wolves are back! helping to bring balance to the landscape. This is one of conservations greatest success stories. But wolves continue to be one of the most controversial of animals as conflicts, fear and misperceptions continue to put them in jeopardy.
For a stable recovery, wolves continue to need our voices. Opportunities to help and to take action for wolves will be shared as they are available. By taking action in support of wolf recovery, what seems like a small step counts.
On January 6, 2021, Gray Wolves were stripped nationwide of their Endangered Species protection excepting the Mexican gray wolves. Now Idaho plans to kill 90% of their wolves and Montana 85% of their wolves. USFWS is conducting a year long status review. They have the authority to make an emergency relisting which is what we need to ask them to do. Public comments are being taken. Wolves need your voice today!
