After 60 years without its historic top predator, Oregon's first known wolf wandered in from Idaho in 1999, and in 2008 a breeding pair was confirmed in the state. It's only been seven years since then -- yet the state is already considering removing wolf protections.
Please join us in telling the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission that wolf recovery is nowhere near complete.
Oregon wolves occupy just 12 percent of the habitat deemed suitable by the state, and most of those wolves live in the northeast region, where wolves are already less protected due to certain provisions in the state wolf plan. Those wolves are the source population for wolves to spread to the rest of Oregon. So if they lose protections now, recovery across the state is doomed.
