Gray Wolves - as a species - have a right to survive! w/ recent NPR news

Trump Administration Seeks To Take Gray Wolf Off Endangered Species List
March 6, 20197:28 PM ET



The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will seek to end federal protections for the gray wolf throughout the lower 48 states, Acting Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt announced Wednesday.

There are now more than 5,000 gray wolves in the Lower 48, up from about 1,000 in 1975, according to The Associated Press.

There is disagreement about how fully the gray wolf population has recovered. Conservation groups say the gray wolf is found in just a small portion of its former territory.

Jamie Rappaport Clark, a former director of the Fish and Wildlife Service now with the Defenders of Wildlife, told the AP that protections were needed to prevent "an all-out war on wolves" in states that would allow them to be hunted.
