Hello wolf advocates,
So many wolf lawsuits, so little time to keep track of them.
In response to federal delisting and new anti-wolf laws in several states, this year we’ve seen a dizzying flurry of lawsuits and petitions at state and federal levels to relist wolves under the Endangered Species Act and block or restrict state wolf hunts.
On Friday, a federal judge will hear opening oral arguments in a set of three lawsuits against the US government’s ESA delisting in a California court. Check out this great summary of where these and other ongoing lawsuits and actions to protect wolves currently stand.

After conservation groups filed petitions to relist gray wolves under the ESA this summer, the US Fish & Wildlife Service declined to give emergency protections but announced a 12-month status review of the delisting—meaning that, for a year, wolves will continue to lack protections.
