Protecting Grey wolves: round two

Over the past 15 years, the Grey Wolf has made a come-back and, as a result, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed it from the Endangered Species Act in Idaho and Montana, but not in Wyoming. That means that poor Mr. Wolf would be safe in one state, but if he crosses the border he could be hunted.

Thankfully a judge has stepped in and announced that wolves don’t recognize political borders, and it isn’t really fair to say that a species is protected in one area but not in another. The Grey Wolf has been put back on the list of protected animals until its population numbers are healthier throughout their entire range.

Wild animals don’t play by our rules. If we are going to save them, then we need to understand them. That’s why Earth Rangers wants to expose your inner animal to help Bring Back the Wild.
