The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) is set to finalize their plan to kick wolves off of the endangered species list any day. Recently, the Service’s Northern Rockies Wolf Coordinator said, “We think wolves should be delisted, they should be managed by states.” Director Dan Ashe has said repeatedly, that he views wolf recovery as a success and strongly favors turning the job over to the states.
Despite the Service’s eagerness to walk away, their job isn’t finished and neither is ours. We have worked with our member organizations to create a vision for wolf recovery. It lists important, achievable steps to arrive at a place where the Service can declare success and have it ring true. Sign the Citizens’ Wolf Recovery Vision Statement.
