Last week was a busy one! Friday was #EndangeredSpeciesDay, which happened to be the same day as the OR Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Commission's public meeting and hearing. Thanks to the Endangered Species Act and the hard work of so many, together, we celebrate conservation successes and will continue to collaborate on future projects.

Also, we would like to thank everyone that was able to attend last week's activist training/workshop and Friday's hearing. Your testimonies and support is fantastic and made a real, positive impact. You spoke-up on behalf of wolf protections in Oregon and it was heard. THANK YOU!

Andrew RiggsYou do know that the wolf plan explicitly states that no hunting seasons are allowed right? The state would have to hire contractors to trap and kill specific wolves, just like they do with cougars.

BREAKING NEWS:

In response to a petition filed two weeks ago by 19 conservation and wildlife organizations, including some Pacific Wolf Coalition member organizations, the USDA's Wildlife Services program announced their plan to halt the use of M-44 “Cyanide Bombs” in Idaho. This is a huge and important first step towards banning this dangerous poison.

Here's more info: www.biologicaldiversity.org/news/press_releases/2017/m44s-04-10-2017.php
...

BREAKING Wildlife Services Halts Use of M-44 “Cyanide Bombs” in Idaho The USDA’s Wildlife Services program – which kills thousands of predators across the country annually – announced today it has abandoned use of M-44 "cyanide bombs" in Idaho in response to a petition filed by 19 conservation and wildlife organizations (including the Wolf Conservation Center) two weeks ago. “This could well be the tipping point that leads to a nationwide ban of these extraordinarily dangerous devices via the legislation introduced in Congress last month,” said Brooks Fahy, executive director of Predator Defense. “As the recent cases in Idaho, Wyoming and Oregon amply demonstrate, M-44s endanger non-target wildlife, pets and children, no matter how they are used.” More: bit.ly/2nWxkIa

For those in northern California and southern Oregon, here's an opportunity to speak up on behalf of wolves and wolf policy, specifically in regards to Oregon's draft, revised Wolf Management and Conservation Plan, at the ODFW Commission Hearing in Klamath Falls,OR. If you're able to attend, mark your calendars.
...

Public Hearing on the Oregon Wolf Plan - Klamath Falls

April 21, 2017, 8:00am

Running Y Ranch, Ponderosa Room, 5500 Running Y Road, Klamath Falls, Oregon 97601

**SAVE THE DATE** Annual Report, Draft Management Plan before Commission in April 2017 ODFW staff will present their 2016 Wolf Annual Report and a draft updated Wolf Management Plan to the Commission at their April 21 meeting in Klamath Falls. Extreme weather in parts of northeast Oregon has delayed field work, including fixed-wing and helicopter flights and on-the-ground surveys of wolves. ODFW staff need additional time to complete their counts. For this reason, the 2016 Wolf Annual Report, which includes an updated wolf population count and number of breeding pairs, has been delayed from its usual March release date. ODFW staff will also present a Draft updated version of the Oregon Wolf Management and Conservation Plan at the Commission’s April 21 meeting. The Wolf Plan undergoes a routine review every five years. The presentation will be informational only; the Commission is not expected to adopt a final updated Plan until later in the year. In-person public testimony will be taken at the meeting or send comments to odfw.commission@state.or.us Comments received by April 4 will be included in the Commission information packet.

Accident claims Sherman pack breeding female The collared breeding female wolf from the Sherman pack was killed last week; hit by a car on State Highway 20, Sherman Pass.

Kim PearsonThose who care about wildlife and what's left of wild lands need to work closer together toward monitoring animals/regions, and the people and activities that exploit/diminish them. Government departments of investigation are not effective enough; we should be working together to provide as much proof as possible to these, or our own agencies.

With blocky feet and long pliable toes that conform to uneven terrain, wolves are well adapted to long-distance travel. The paws of a wolf are large, almost the size of an adult human hand, and thus able to perform like snowshoes carrying wolves effortlessly atop the crusty layer of deep snow.

An important season for wolves is around the corner - breeding season. Learn more below:
...

It is officially wolf breeding season. In around 63 days, the first pups will be born, just around the time snow starts to melt to give pups the longest possible time to mature before the next winter. It is important for wolf pups to have the best start possible in order to navigate the challenges of being a wolf, such as surviving habitat destruction, hunting prey, and avoiding humans. Pups are born in the warmth of an underground den and protected by the alpha pair and other members of the pack. We wish all packs a safe and thriving breeding season. #WolfWednesday

Pacific Wolves shared Conservation Northwest's post.

Check out these wildlife images from PWC member organization, Conservation Northwest, from their Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project:
...

While most of our Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project remote camera sites are active only in the summer and fall, each winter our volunteers and staff maintain several sites looking for wolverines in remote areas of the Cascades. In 2016 one of them captured amazing new images of a gray wolf! Wolves typically reside at lower elevations during the winter, but individuals have been known to go on long walkabouts in search of food, mates or new territory. This collared wolf photographed in the Chiwaukum Mountains west of Leavenworth is a member of the Teanaway Pack. This is the third time we've photographed wolves traveling through this area. We've also photographed a number of wolverines here over the years. Wolverines are one of the few large mammals active in higher elevation areas throughout the winter. This makes the snowy months a great time to lure them in with scent and bait, documenting their presence and identifying individuals through "run pole" camera traps. This data helps state and federal scientists understand the status and range of wolverines in our region, information that can be used to support their recovery! We deploy these camera sites under the guidance of agency and professional scientists, and all research permits are obtained where required. We typically limit our use of bait during the summer to avoid attracting black bears or other non-target species. In this case, we waited several months before sharing these photos in part to ensure the wolf is no longer in this area. Learn more about our Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project and how to get involved at www.conservationnw.org/monitoring or in this short video: www.facebook.com/ConservationNW/videos/10153073366058748/ #WAWolves #Wolverine #TrailCam #WildlifeMonitoring
