Conservation Groups Offer A Wolf Management Blueprint

Wolves roam our part of the west once again, but they are followed by a significant set of issues and challenges.

Wolves are protected in parts of the region, but not all. State-by-state approaches to wolf management lead to disparate outcomes, like California leaving wolves generally alone while Oregon and Washington allow killing of nuisance wolves.

A coalition of environmental groups recently issued guidelines for wolf management, in the hope that states and wolf advocates will push for some consistency.

The Center for Biological Diversity is part of the coalition; Amaroq Weiss, CBD's Senior West Coast Wolf Advocate, joins us with details.
