One Million Protest Stripping Wolves of Endangered Listing

Washington, DC – The public comment period closed today on a proposal by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to remove federal protections for all gray wolves across the country.  Close to one million Americans stated their opposition to the plan – the largest number of comments ever submitted on a federal decision involving endangered species.  Also today, conservation groups challenged as “premature” the Service’s removal of federal Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in Wyoming.
