Today, the gray wolf is making a comeback in the Great Lakes region and the Northern Rockies and the Southwest. The National Wildlife Federation and the Coalition to Restore the Eastern Timber Wolf are working toward the goal of recovering wolves in suitable habitats in the forests of the Northeast. Unfortunately, a rule proposed by the federal government in 2003 severely undermines the possibility of wolf recovery in this region.
This booklet was prepared to provide information and to encourage discussion on the issues that surround wolf restoration in the Northern Forest. This booklet is focused on the scientific and social implications of large predator recovery and recognizes that there are definite wildlife management issues that warrant continued discussion. Hopefully, this booklet will contribute to the knowledge and understanding necessary for an informed discussion that is critical to any successful wildlife recovery effort.
