Don’t let wolves and all other endangered wildlife become just a memory…Fight for what you love!!!
RESTORING THE GRAY WOLF
Few animals evoke the wild like wolves. Majestic, rangy and highly social, wolves play a crucial role in driving evolution and helping calibrate nature’s complex relationships.
Once — before bounties, a federal extermination program and expansive human settlement — wolves roamed freely throughout most of the United States. Scientists estimate there were once some 2 million of the animals living wild in North America.
By the 1960s, when wolves were finally protected under a precursor to the Endangered Species Act, they had been exterminated from all of the contiguous United States except a portion of Minnesota and Isle Royale National Park — victims of an unwillingness, on the part of the livestock industry, to coexist.
Protection under the Endangered Species Act helped wolves tremendously. But now, with recovery incomplete, many wolves prematurely removed from the endangered species list, and others persecuted even while ostensibly protected, the gray wolf is in renewed danger.
