Save Oregon’s Struggling Wolf Population

Save Oregon's Stuggling Wolf Population

Hi friend,

Wolves only reappeared in Oregon three years ago, but they’re already under serious threat.

In 2008, wolves established the first Oregon wolf pack in more than 60 years with formation of the Imnaha pack. Since then two other packs have established.

But it hasn’t been smooth sailing for Oregon’s wolves. In response to pressure from the Oregon Cattelmen’s Assocation, the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife has been aggressively responding to a small number of livestock depredations by killing wolves. In part due to these killings, Oregon’s wold population has dropped from 21 to just 14.

The Center for Biological Diversity and its allies got a temporary stay on more killings, but now it’s time for the state to reevaluate its approach to wolf management. Oregon’s tiny wolf population can’t withstand killings, instead the state should help ranchers change practices and reduce wolf-cattle conflicts.

Gov. Kitzhaber has an opportunity to change the course of wolf management in his state. Tell him to seize the moment and improve the future for Oregon’s wolves »
