Nationwide Recovery Sought for Gray Wolves

Wolves once roamed across this country, and it's time their recovery had
a nationwide scope. That's why the Center for Biological Diversity
filed a scientific petition Tuesday to reestablish gray wolves in
several connected populations throughout their historic habitat in the
United States. Our petition calls for a recovery plan to bring back
wolves in suitable areas in the Pacific Northwest, California, the Great
Basin, the southern Rocky Mountains, the Great Plains and New England.
Currently in the lower 48 states, the gray wolf's small, isolated
populations are limited to the northern Rocky Mountains, western Great
Lakes and Southwest -- less than 5 percent of its historic range. The
animals are living under outdated plans that underestimate how many
wolves are needed for populations to recover and don't acknowledge that
wolves can, and must, inhabit other areas too.

"Wolves are an engine of evolution," said Michael Robinson, the Center's
predator expert. "They help feed bears, eagles and wolverines with the
leftovers from their kills. They help pronghorn and even foxes survive
by controlling coyotes. A continent-wide approach to wolf recovery is
necessary both to save the wolf and to restore ecosystems across the
United States."
