Description: The gray wolf population in the western U.S. has reached its numerical and distributional recovery goals. The Service finalized a 10(j) experimental population rule that transfers wolf management authority to the States of Montana and Idaho, including responsibility for wolf monitoring. The Service currently has MOUs with the State of Idaho, State of Montana and the Nez Perce Tribe to monitor and manage wolves. Montana and Idaho have Service-accepted state wolf management plans for wolves which include monitoring. Monitoring must continue to document the population status of the wolf. The proposed funds would be used, under the authority of the ESA, for salaries for State wolf management personnel and for equipment, such as radio collars, traps, and aircraft flight time. Subsequently included in FY 2008 Request.
