Wolves Need More Help [Five percent is not enough!!]

Ecological/Natural History

Need to convey a sense of urgency up-front.

Effects on prey

Secondary effects on plants

Tertiary effects on beaver, songbirds, fish

History of Extirpation

Individual efforts to wipe wolves out failed

Federal Government involved in 1914

Appropriation to fund wolf killing was on par with funding a war

Took another 30 years to fully extirpate wolves from lower forty-eight states

Recovery Efforts to Date

Endangered Species Act enacted in 1973

Wolves one of first species listed

Wolves begin to recolonize Great Lakes states in 1975

Wolves restored to Yellowstone National Park in 1995

Mexican wolves released in Arizona in 1998

What Remains to Be Done

Wolves now restored to less than 5% of their former range in lower forty-eight states

Government claims the job is done

Law requires more

Places like Colorado, Utah, Washington and Oregon have plenty of room and prey for wolves

Government must take the lead, Citizens need to demand leadership from the government
