UPDATE ON WOLVES

On to wolves a host of environmental organizations have initiated litigation to prohibit the Fish and Wildlife Service from downlisting the wolf from its present endangered status to a less protective threatened status. (See, of late, HUPC LYNX 2/03 and 4/03.) The primary argument is that while wolf recovery has been successful in Yellowstone/central Idaho, the number of wolves, both in these areas and across the true historical range of wolves, simply dont meet any recognized long term species viability standards. Having wolves meet minimum standards in Yellowstone, for example, for only a few years has no long term meaning and certainly across the historical range of wolves there still exist few, if any, self sustaining wolf packs.
