Cancel Plans to De-List Wolves

  • By: Animal Advocates
  • Target: Department of Interior Secretary Sally Jewell,- President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden

The decision to strip federal protections and remove the Grey Wolf from the Endangered Species List has been delayed. Government attorneys announced that "a recent unexpected delay" is indefinitely holding up action on the proposed delisting. Which is good news,- but better news would be if they cancelled the de-listing altogether.

While it is true that wolves are recovering in some isolated areas- they have NOT made a full recovery. Gray Wolves were put onto the Endangered Species list in 1974 because they were hunted to extinction in some places, and re-intoduced because sound science understood the importance of this keystone species.

Grey wolves have not made a full recovery in large portions of the Pacific Northwest, California, southern Rocky Mountains and the Northeast and still need federal protection.

We ask that plans to de-list the grey wolf be cancelled- not simply delayed.
