Mexican Gray Wolves Need Your Voice
Mexican gray wolf recovery was never going to be easy, but if USFWS’s draft recovery plan is put into action, it may just push America’s most endangered gray wolf even closer to extinction.
Earlier this month USFWS released its draft plan for the lobo that will remove federal Endangered Species Act protections long before a stable, functional, and recovered population is achieved. The draft criteria for down-listing or delisting Mexican wolves in this new document is woefully short of scientific recommendations and hands far too much control to the same states that are already actively thwarting wolf recovery.
There’s still time for the feds to fix the plan before it becomes final. The comment period on the proposed plan is open through August 29, giving Americans one last chance to have their voices heard.
