The Obama administration has proposed removing Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in most of the lower 48 states - including the Pacific Northwest. They are taking public comments on this controversial proposal.
Talking points. USFWS gray wolves
Comment deadline is December 17, 2013.
Conservation Northwest supports protecting wolves under the Endangered Species Act until they have fully recovered, especially packs that are vulnerable such as those returning to Washington’s Cascade Mountains. While wolves have made a remarkable rebound in the northern Rockies and western Great Lakes over the past 15 years, those areas represent only a small portion of their historic range. The Service's proposal to remove protections for all wolves living outside of the Rocky Mountains, Great Lakes, and a small area in the Southwest is a political decision that isn’t justified by science.
Urge the Department of the Interior and Secretary Jewell to protect gray wolves as they continue to make their historic comeback in the US. Extended comment deadline is December 17, 2013.
