In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Adrian P. Wydeven, Coordinator of Timber Wolf Alliance, Northland College and a retired wildlife biologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Wisconsin’s state wolf manager 1990 -2013. Wydeven joined Managing Editor H. Sterling Burnett to discuss a letter he co-authored signed by 26 wildlife management professionals and scientists sent to the Department of the Interior, urging it remove the great lakes gray wolf populations in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin from the Endangered Species list.
The scientists say the species is no longer endangered in the region and does not require further protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and that failure to delist wolves in these states is counterproductive to wolf conservation there and elsewhere where suitable habitat may exist and lessens support for the ESA.
