Gray Wolf Status by State in the Northeast
Wolves roamed the Northeast into the last century, until they were eliminated by persistent anti-wolf campaigns and the decimation of timberlands. Successful forest regeneration in the past 100 years has created suitable wolf habitat again in the region, and scientists continue to study the possibility of the natural recolonization and restoration of wolves to the ecosystem.
If the gray wolf loses federal protections afforded by the Endangered Species Act, its future here in the Northeast depends on its status at the state level. Is the wolf listed as endangered in your state?
