Trump Administration to End Protections for Endangered Gray Wolves

HeadlineOct 30, 2020

The Trump administration says it is ending endangered species protections for the gray wolf, saying a scattered population of 6,000 wolves across the U.S. is enough to save the species. The Natural Resources Defense Council blasted the decision, writing in a statement, “As we face a biodiversity crisis of global proportions, it is imperative for us to recognize that this isn’t just about wolves. The fate of humanity is intertwined with the fate of species and healthy ecosystems.”
