Great Lakes Wolf Summit

The Great Lakes Wolf Summit, was hosted on September 15, 2016 by Senator Tom Tiffany and Representative Adam Jarchow, as a meeting of public officials, scientists, and interested parties from Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota to discuss the necessity for state-led wolf management programs. Attendees heard from several experts about their experiences with management programs and participated in in-depth discussions on best practices regarding rising wolf populations. NCWCA members were in attendance and asked that the gray wolf be taken off the endangered species list, allowing for a population of 350 or less.
