Wildlife advocacy group fights removal of gray wolf from endangered species list

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed stripping Endangered Species Act protection from most wolves across America, indicating that protection is no longer warranted since gray wolf populations worldwide are stable. The Center for Biological Diversity claims the plan walks away from a 40-year commitment to gray wolves across the country. The Center works through science, law and creative media to secure a future for all species, great or small, hovering on the brink of extinction.

Under the plan, wolves in the Northeast, California, Pacific Northwest, Southern Rocky Mountains, and elsewhere would be left to be managed by state game agencies. These states would be free to allow hunting, trapping, even gassing of wolves within their borders. Still-recovering wolf populations could be decimated for sport and there would be no recourse under Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell’s proposal.

Before the Service finalizes this proposal, it’s holding hearings across the country to get public input.

In Sacramento, CA, the recent Stand with Wolves effort featuring 2014 California Gubernatorial Candidate Dr. Robert Ornelas voiced their support of wildlife advocacy.
