The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finalized its deeply flawed recovery plan for the critically endangered Mexican gray wolf last month that will prevent the species from recovering in its historic homelands. Former federal officials say it strays far from scientists’ minimum recommendations for recovery.
So, we’re taking USFWS to court.
On January 30, Earthjustice, on behalf of the Wolf Conservation Center, Dave Parsons (Mexican Wolf Recovery Coordinator for the USFWS), the Center for Biological Diversity, Defenders of Wildlife, and the Endangered Wolf Center filed a lawsuit challenging the federal government’s fatally flawed plan.
We’re standing up for critically endangered lobos like F1435 (aka Magdalena) in the hope that one day, her species will be fully restored to their rightful place on the wild landscape.
