Description

When are we done protecting the gray wolf?

Become a Video Lab member! http://bit.ly/video-lab

When European settlers first came to America they were set on civilizing the land. This meant a lot of rash, sweeping changes one of which was to eradicate a familiar target: the gray wolf. Bounties were placed on the animal across the US. By the1930s, the once plentiful wolf population was decimated.

Decades later, restorations efforts have led to an extensive recovery of the animal. The Fish and Wildlife Service thinks weve done enough, but conservationists say our work is far from done. Check out the video above to learn more.
