The Wolf Conservation Center’s (WCC) efforts to conserve Mexican gray wolves is priority. It’s crunch time for the Mexican wolf, the future of the planet’s most endangered wolf is on shaky ground.  Although the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s  (USFWS) proposal to change the rules governing the Mexican wolf reintroduction does include ONE step in the right direction, to finally allow direct releases onto a larger area of the wild landscape in the southwest,  USFWS will continue to designate  Mexican wolves as “experimental, non-essential” and prevent lobos from ever dispersing to last best places for wolves in Grand Canyon region, including northern Arizona and southern Utah, or to northern New Mexico and southern Colorado.  The problems with this proposal was among the themes over the past few days at the Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project‘s awareness raising event – Paseo Del Lobo Big Lake Howliday Campout Weekend.
