Comment on the Mexican wolf release plan before March 8th
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service should release more than two families of wolves into the wild in 2017 rather than rely too heavily on the risky and less proven cross-fostering technique.
We’d also like to see them release wolves into approved, suitable release sites beyond the Gila and Aldo Leopold Wilderness areas.
Fourteen wolves were lost from the wild in 2016, the most losses we’ve seen in any single year since the recovery program began. For every wild lobo lost, we would like to see the Service release the same number of captive wolves as families that are bonded into the wild.
