Wolf Management In The Northern Rockies Is Now Before A Federal Judge
A settlement agreement reached a week ago with 10 conservation groups and the Department of Interior is now facing scrutiny by U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy. The settlement would return management of the predators to Idaho and Montana while retaining full endangered species protection in Washington, Oregon, Wyoming and Utah. Executive Director of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, Mike Clark tells us why the agreement was reached.
Clark says wolves are a keystone species that allow other plants and animals from beaver and trout to willows and migratory birds to thrive in a way that will fascinate and benefit Americans for generations to come. Wolves have a place on the landscape, and continued conflict doesn’t help anyone.
