Biodiversity: Wolves get short end of the stick – again
Summit County Citizens Voice : June 8, 2013

  Summary:  The Obama administration recently announced a plan to eliminate endangered species protections for nearly all wolves in the continental United States, despite the fact that gray wolves currently occupy only a fraction of their historic habitat in the Lower 48 and have suffered drastic population losses since federal protections in the northern Rocky Mountains and western Great Lakes were lifted in 2011. The delisting is likely to hinder or halt wolf recovery efforts in the Pacific Northwest, California, the Southern Rockies, and the Northeast, where conservationists had hoped gray wolves would reprise the important role they have traditionally played in the ecosystems of these regions.

Earthjustice attorney Doug Honnold said, “With today’s proposal, the federal government walks away from wolf recovery before the job is done … The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is charged with ensuring the survival of species and today’s announced proposal is a huge step in the opposite direction.“
