Great Lakes Wolf No Longer on Endangered List
Gray wolf populations in the Great Lakes region have recovered and no longer require the protection of the Endangered Species Act. Wolves in Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and in portions of adjoining states, will be dropped from the list of endangered and threatened wildlife and plants.
With more than 4,000 wolves thriving in the region, the program has surpassed its recovery goal, and the wolves have made a successful comeback. The wolves no longer need federal protection.
