Grupos de conservación llevan a los tribunales a los peces y la vida silvestre de EE. UU. por los lobos rojos


Conservation groups filed a complaint late yesterday in the US District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina against the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) for its failure to protect the world’s only wild population of red wolves and its illegal action in authorizing the killing of a breeding female red wolf.

They criticize USFWS, the very agency charged by federal law with protecting the endangered species, for failing to undertake the legal analysis required by the ESA and for its active role in allowing the illegal take of additional red wolves.

The conservation groups involved in the litigation include the Coalición Lobo Rojo,Defensores de la Vida Silvestre y el Instituto de Bienestar Animal (AWI), and are represented by the Centro de Derecho Ambiental del Sur (SELC).

Los lobos rojos siguen estando entre las especies más amenazadas del mundo. La estimación actual sitúa a la única población salvaje de lobos rojos en su nivel más bajo (50 a 75) desde finales de la década de 1990.

Only one place on the planet are wild red wolf populations viable and secure – North Carolina. But the state’s Wildlife Resources Commission has asked USFWS to terminate the red wolf recovery program there, a move which would inevitably result in the loss of the last wild population of red wolves and render the species extinct in the wild.

While USFWS continues to review the program, it has halted all captive-to-wild releases and management activity critical to the success of this recovery program.
