California Wolf recovery imperiled after removal from Endangered Species list


In summary

Now that the federal government has abandoned protection for most wolves, the job of protecting them falls to governors, legislators and wildlife commissions.

The Trump administration recently stripped Endangered Species Act protection from the gray wolf across almost the entire country. Now the fate of this iconic animal in California is profoundly uncertain.

Wolf recovery is in its infancy here. Just 38 wolves have been confirmed in California since 2011, and at least three – including the beloved wolf OR-54, who wandered nearly 9,000 miles looking for a mate – were subsequently found dead in the state. Officials have acknowledged one as an illegal killing, and the other two are still open investigations.
