Historically, gray wolves once occupied most of the lower 48 states. However,
human persecution through hunting and predator control programs, fewer
prey and the loss of habitat took its toll.
Different populations of gray wolf around the United States are protected in
different ways by the Endangered Species Act. In most of the United States, it
is listed as endangered. However some populations are doing better such as
the gray wolf in the Great Lakes region, which are listed as threatened. Why is
it important how a certain population is listed? It matters because those
populations get different levels of protection under the Act.
The National Wildlife Federation plays a key role in monitoring whether various
wolf populations have the protections they need to thrive; working with
biologists and government officials to ensure wolves get the most appropriate
One exciting moment in National Wildlife Federation history came when they
helped reintroduce the gray wolf back into Yellowstone National Park in 1995.
This has lead to a healthier ecosystem in Yellowstone and an exciting
opportunity for America to get back in touch with the amazing gray wolf.
