With the national public comment period on the USFWS wolf delisting proposal ending on May 14th, we are hosting another event in Duluth, MN to gather public comments and showcase wolf themed art from local Wolf Flow Artists.
Here is a statement from the artists
Wild Icon or Mere Statistic?
We wouldn’t be true wolf advocates if we didn’t acknowledge the conflict issues between humans and wolves. We commit ourselves to being part of the solution.
We recognize it has been established that the recreational hunting and trapping of wolves does not solve the depredation dilemma. We do know for certain that there is so much more to learn
and understand about this intelligent Apex species, the vital role it plays in our ecosystem; notably, in current times of climate crisis.
The most fascinating way of the wolf is that ironically, when the wolf is free from our imposing grip and blunt interference it naturally manages its own population while steadying and increasing the population of its prey. If wolves begin to recover in any region, it is good overall for the health of our natural lands and other wild species of concern.
This is not the time to De-list the wolf from the ESL. We ask you to learn more, ask questions to better understand the scope of this issue.
“If only we could match tolerance to the magnificence of this wild icon, our nation would be in a better place.”- WFA
