On January 31, 2005, gray wolf conservation won a victory when a federal district court ruled that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service violated the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) when it reduced protections for gray wolves across most of the lower-48 United States.
The court’s decision ensures the highest level of federal protection for wolves and requires that the government continue its efforts to recover the species throughout its historic range.
