Wolf Conservation Center: Manipulating the Numbers in Montana Wolf Policies

Wolf Conservation Center: Manipulating the Numbers in Montana Wolf Policies | Garry Rogers Nature Conservation News | Scoop.it

"Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has stated publicly many times over the years, that they are using the best available science in their Gray Wolf management policies. Yet, time and time again, they have proven that they are not using the best available science, but rather manipulating numbers to appease special hunting groups and organizations, as well as the domestic livestock industry."

Garry Rogers's insight:

GR:  For public land managers, the U. S. "wild-wild-west" legacy shows up in the inflated influence of hunters and cowboys.  Public agency officials use tricks and deception to serve their old friends.

Patricia Randolph's Madravenspeak: Wolf execution 'quota' a measure of DNR’s ignorance

Patricia Randolph's Madravenspeak: Wolf execution 'quota' a measure of DNR’s ignorance | Garry Rogers Nature Conservation News | Scoop.it

"On Wednesday, June 25, the Natural Resources Board, comprised predominantly of appointed hunter activists, will “consider” the hunter-controlled wolf committee’s quota of 156 wolves to be killed in the 2014-15 hunting/trapping/hounding season — the third season in Wisconsin."

Garry Rogers's insight:

GR:  Why not adjust human behavior instead of eliminating the tiny threats and minor competition from wolves.  Perhaps the Natural Resources Board should reread "Never Cry Wolf."

Stop the execution of Siberian wolves

Stop the execution of Siberian wolves | Garry Rogers Nature Conservation News | Scoop.it

Here is the link to sign the Siberian Wolf petition to the Parliament of Latvia Stop killing wolves.

Garry Rogers's insight:

GR:  Herders and farmers see wolves as economic threats; hunters see them as competitors.  Neither group is interested in stable Earth ecosystems.  Perhaps Latvians need a better education like, uh, like….  Hmm, does any country require natural history and ecology courses in its school curricula?

Changes Needed to Help Mexican Wolves

Changes Needed to Help Mexican Wolves | Garry Rogers Nature Conservation News | Scoop.it

"Recently the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) proposed one very good and many very bad changes to the rules governing the Mexican wolf reintroduction.

"The proposal is very important to the future of Mexican wolves in the wild, who numbered only 83 at the last official count.

"USFWS plans to release a draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and to hold a public comment period and hearings this year.

"Your help is needed now to make sure that changes to help the lobos thrive are included and the changes that would push them closer to extinction are discarded" (www.mexicanwolves.org).
