USFWS Plan to Delist Gray Wolf - Unsound Science

Due to public outcry and the scientific controversy surrounding the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) proposal to remove the Gray Wolf from the endangered species (ESA) list, the Service commissioned the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) to conduct an unbiased study to clarify disputed issues. USFWS conducted an internal study in 2012 whose findings led them to propose the delisting. NCEAS panel of experts found that the study was based strongly on a single publication which is considered to be preliminary and not generally accepted by the scientific community. The panel recommended that a more comprehensive study based on recent data should be considered before making a decision.
