Wolf Population Stabilizing in Wisconsin / Public News Service

MADISON, Wis. – With talk in Washington about changing or reforming the Endangered Species Act, a Wisconsin wolf expert says this is not the time for a change.

Melissa Smith of Madison, who is the Great Lakes wolf coordinator for the Endangered Species Coalition, points to a success story in the state. Smith says the wolf population is now 925, the highest it’s been since we started counting.

“The Wisconsin wolf population is stabilizing, and if we let them stabilize – on the DNR’s own website it says probably around a thousand wolves, we’re getting close – we’re not going to see the wolf population increasing exponentially,” she says. “They will stabilize and they’ll be able to fill their role on the landscape.”
