FWS 12-Month Finding for Gray Wolves

On April 27, 2022, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services (FWS) invited Tribes to consult on the 12-Month Finding for Gray Wolves in the Western United States.  

On September 17, 2021, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services (FWS) published a 90-day finding on two petitions to list a distinct populations segment (DPS) of the gray wolf in the Norther Rocky Mountains or in the western United States under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended.  The FWS finding concluded that the petitions presented substantial information indicating that the petitioned actions may be warranted. Therefore, FWS initiated a status review to determine whether the petitioned actions are warranted. No decision regarding whether or not to list the gray wolf in these DPSs have been made yet.  FWS anticipate delivering a 12-month finding with this listing determination to the Federal Register by September 30, 2022. 

Please submit written comments to wolf90day20210915@fws.gov any time.  

For further information, please contact Scott Aikin, the National Native American Programs Coordinator at Scott_Aikin@fws.gov or (202) 285-3411.
