Update: Efforts to preserve extremely endangered Mexican wolves are being realized!

25 Aug

On April 21, 2014, WildEarth Guardians sealed a pioneering deal with a rancher to voluntarily (and permanently) retire his grazing permit. Cattle will be removed from nearly 50 square miles of the Gila National Forest, meaning more space for the endangered Mexican wolf to roam free and thrive.

To complete this first historic grazing retirement, WildEarth Guardians raised hundreds of thousands (paid to the rancher). WildEarth Guardians has another permit retirement agreement signed and is collaborating with other ranchers in the Greater Gila Bioregion to voluntarily waive their grazing privileges.
