Wolves in the Midwest back on the Endangered Species List!

On December 19th 2014 a Federal judge ruled to place wolves in the Western Great Lakes Distinct Population Segment back on the Endangered Species List. This ruling places management of wolves back in the hands of the federal government. It also prevents people from protecting their pets and or livestock from depredation from wolves.

Pella Wildlife Company will continue with field research of wolves in Wisconsin and Iowa. Staff will be conducting winter wolf surveys this winter and wolf pup surveys this summer. A new survey block was created by the Wisconsin DNR on the Iowa / Wisconsin border. Pella Wildlife Company has been given the responsibility to monitor this block in addition to the three blocks Pella Wildlife Company has monitored in the past. Your support will help our non profit wildlife conservation organization continue with efforts to monitor and manage the gray wolf in the Midwest.
