Don't Let FWS Turn Tail on Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery
Right now, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is considering a draft recovery plan that blatantly ignores the recommendations of independent wolf experts and could drastically hinder the recovery of Mexican gray wolves in the wild, even potentially leading to their ultimate demise.
The plan would institute artificial boundaries for Mexican gray wolves and prevent them from reaching habitat in the Grand Canyon and parts of New Mexico and Colorado that scientists say are essential to their survival. It would also arbitrarily cap the population of wolves at 320 individuals - a number far short of the 750 recommended by scientists to ensure their survival - and improperly transfer decision-making authority from the FWS to states.
