WDFW opens public comment period for rule making on proposed status change for the gray wolf

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking public input on a rule making proposal to reclassify Washington’s gray wolves (Canis lupus) from state endangered to sensitive, based on the current biological status of the species.  

WDFW’s procedures anticipate that the status of wildlife species listed as endangered, threatened, or sensitive will be reviewed every five years through a periodic status review (PSR) process to assess available species information and recommend whether the species’ status warrants its current listing or if a reclassification is recommended.
