Gray wolves left vulnerable without endangered species protections

Statement: Trump administration’s decision to strip protections for gray wolves threatens a species numbering only 6,000 in the continental U.S.

“Instead of this wrong-headed move, we need a bold national plan, if not a continental one, to safeguard these wolves. Do we really want to lose the hearty howl of the gray wolf on our watch?"
