Interior Announces Grey Wolf Recovery Success

Management of populations returned to local governments.

The Interior Department announced on Thursday that the Trump Administration was officially delisting the American grey wolf from the endangered species list. The wolf has been on the list for over 45 years and, due to conservation efforts, has made significant recoveries in population and habitat across the nation. 

With over 6,000 wolves in the lower 48 states, the Interior Department determined that it was ready to hand over the management of the species to local municipalities. Secretary Bernhardt said of the news, “After more than 45 years as a listed species, the gray wolf has exceeded all conservation goals for recovery. Today’s announcement simply reflects the determination that this species is neither a threatened nor endangered species.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would guide the Interior Department as it cares for His creation.
  • That Secretary Bernhardt would be given wisdom from the Lord on how to lead the Interior Department.
  • For the president’s administration as it oversees U.S. lands.
