Gray wolves play an essential role in Minnesota’s wilderness, keeping our state’s forests and wildlife balanced and healthy. Their survival depends on protections that allow them to roam freely and safely, free from human interference.
Once hunted to the brink of extinction across the lower 48 states, the remote northeastern forests of Minnesota became a vital refuge where the last remaining wolves could survive. It is believed that wolves from these resilient packs were crucial in reestablishing wolf populations in Wisconsin and Michigan.
The power to protect wolves lies in the hands of our elected officials
Federal officials play a key role in determining whether wolves receive protection under the Endangered Species Act. This vital legislation ensures consistent safeguarding of wolves across state borders and prohibits hunting and trapping.
Once federal protections are removed, state governments take control of wolf management. State officials can pass laws and regulations to protect wolves or define management practices, such as establishing hunting and trapping seasons.
