Trump Administration Moves to Strip Endangered Species Protections for Gray Wolves Nationwide

Washington, D.C. – WEBWIRE

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released a proposal to strip Endangered Species protections from gray wolves across the country, despite the fact that they  occupy only five percent of their historic habitat.

In response Bonnie Rice of Sierra Club’s Our Wild America campaign issued the following statement:

“For over a hundred years, wolves have been needlessly persecuted. This is just one more example of the Trump Administration’s attacks on the Endangered Species Act and the vulnerable wildlife it protects. Wolves have barely started to recover in some areas, and still occupy only five percent of their historic range. Now is not the time to remove vital protections.”

“Wolves play an important role in the entire natural system, bringing balance and maintaining healthy herds by reducing the spread of wildlife disease like Chronic Wasting Disease. Instead of persecuting them, we should make a conscious effort to co-exist with wolves, and appreciate them for keeping our natural systems in balance and ensuring our wild places stay wild.”
