The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, as the lead agency responsible for recovery of the Mexican gray wolf, releases annual reports documenting the progress of the Mexican Wolf Recovery Program. The 2011 report has just been released to the public.  These reports contain information of interest to anyone who wants to delve more deeply into the many aspects of the Mexican Wolf Recovery Program. You can access it here.

Take notice that on page 32 the report says "... a combination of initial releases, translocations, natural pair formations, and reproduction in 2012 could result in another increase in the Mexican wolf  population. The Project management objective for 2012 is a 10% increase in the minimum wolf population counts and/or the addition of at least two breeding pairs, while minimizing negative impacts of wolves."
