Get involved, take action, save wolves!
The best way to influence wildlife policy is to get directly involved with your local state or federal wildlife “management” agency. Keep tabs on management plan update schedules, hunting/trapping status, and rule-making; submit public comments; attend meetings and give verbal public comments when possible; and get to know the commissioners who are supposed to represent you.
