Managing Attorney Tim Preso on Protecting Wyoming's Wolves

Managing Attorney Tim Preso discusses the background, history and perspective to Earthjustice's decades-long fight to protect the endangered gray wolf.

On August 31, 2012, under intense pressure from Wyoming officials, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that it would remove endangered species protections for gray wolves in Wyoming, opening most of the state to unlimited killing of the animals.

The move jeopardizes the nation's landmark recovery of wolves in the Northern Rockies. In this recorded telebriefing, Earthjustice Managing Attorney Tim Preso discusses Earthjustice's plans to fight to protect the gray wolves.

The conversation took place on October 4, 2012 and was moderated by National Press Secretary Kari Birdseye.
