On March 15, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) officially proposed removing federal Endangered Species Act protections for nearly all gray wolves across the lower 48 states, a plan that would put the future of the gray wolf and its proven benefits to ecosystems at serious risk.
Under the proposed rule, only the critically endangered Mexican gray wolf population in Arizona and New Mexico would remain federally protected, where 131 remain.
