Bipartisan Group of Lawmakers Supports Downlisting Gray Wolves Nationwide

WASHINGTON - Seventy-eight members of the U.S. House of Representatives sent a letter today urging Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell to support downlisting gray wolves to a status of “threatened” instead of moving forward with a 2013 proposal to strip Endangered Species Act protections from most wolves in the lower 48 states. The support in the House for downlisting comes after a federal court’s recent decision to reject the Service’s proposal to end federal protections for gray wolves in the Great Lakes region and Wyoming.
