Wolves are listed as "critically endangered" on the 2015 Norwegian list of endangered animals, yet Norway is planning to cull more than two-thirds of its remaining wolves -- a move that will be disastrous for the dwindling members of the species in the wild.
A petition asking for emergency Endangered Species Act listing for Prince of Wales Island wolves was essentially denied by the U.S. Department of the Interior office in Anchorage. In a letter effectively denying the emergency ESA request from six organizations, USFWS Assistant Regional Director stated that an emergency listing is not something that can be petitioned by outside groups, and is a process “left to the discretion of the Secretary of the Interior.” Secretary Jewell is expected to make a decision regarding protecting these wolves under the ESA by the end of the year.

Its towering stands of 700 year old trees provide vital habitat for bears, salmon, Sitka black-tailed deer, goshawks, and—importantly—the rare and dwindling Alexander Archipelago wolf. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently found that, because of excessive old-growth logging, this unique subspecies of wolf may warrant listing under the Endangered Species Act.
