Mexican Gray Wolves Webinar Series: The First Twenty-Two Years & The Next Chapter
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) issued a request for comments on April 15, 2020, beginning a 60-day period for the public to provide input on the proposed changes to the 10(j) Management Rule. This rule directs many aspects of how the FWS fulfills its obligation to recover the Mexican gray wolf to a sustainable wild population.
Advocates from around the Southwest U.S. are coming together over two evenings, offering webinars to the greater wolf advocate community. Register today and be sure to get a limited spot at this special event:
Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery: The First Twenty-Two Years
The first webinar will be covering the history of wolf extermination in the West and the remarkable effort to begin recovering the wild population from a small group of captive wolves. You’ll learn about the importance of genetic health in wild lobos and the role of a healthy wolf population in returning balance to our desert and forest ecosystems.
Featuring guest wolf advocates Dave Parsons (Project Coyote), Tre Graves (Endangered Species Coalition) & Jean Ossorio
Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery: The Next Chapter!
Following the first webinar, we will continue into the current status of the Mexican gray wolf and recovery efforts. This webinar will discuss various policy opportunities that can come of the current 10(j) management rule change. We’ll also present some tips on how to write your comment letter to help build a case for these changes, ensuring a future that includes wild wolves!
Tuesday, May 19th, 5:30PST/6:30MDT
