ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released its long-awaited Mexican Wolf Recovery Plan on Wednesday, the first update since 1982, and environmental groups say it doesn’t go far enough to protect the endangered subspecies.
A draft of it released in July received more than 100,000 public comments, said Sherry Barrett, the Mexican gray wolf recovery coordinator with Fish and Wildlife. It also underwent multiple peer reviews.
