and other sister organizations walked away from ODFW’s proposed wolf conservation
plan, rather than sign off on recommendations that rejected every suggestion
from environmental groups and scientists. Despite working with a professional
facilitator, negotiations were unsuccessful.
Some objectionable aspects include allowing trophy hunting for pelts and trapping. ODFW is seen as shifting more money and power to their agency with less oversight. Barring changes in the plan, conservation groups will be looking for other means to support Oregon’s small wolf population. For more information and action steps please see the link below.
