Mexican Wolf Recovery Planning

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services announces the availability of the Mexican Wolf Recovery Plan, First Revision. This recovery plan includes recovery criteria that, when met, will enable us to remove this species from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife.

Following the Service's revised approach to recovery planning and implementation (see recovery planning guidance documents below), we are also making available the Biological Report and two supporting analyses - "Population Viability Analysis for the Mexican Wolf" and "Mexican Wolf Habitat Suitability Analysis in Historical Range in Southwestern US and Mexico," and the Mexican Wolf Recovery Implementation Strategy.

Federal Register Notice of Availability of Final Recovery Plan

 

The Service began the process to revise the 1982 Recovery Plan in December 2015. During 2016 and 2017, we reviewed population viability and habitat availability information for the Mexican wolf with assistance from:

- U.S. Forest Service
- Arizona Game and Fish Department
- New Mexico Department of Game and Fish
- Colorado Parks and Wildlife
- Utah Division of Wildlife Resources
- SEMARNAT, Mexico
- CONANP, Mexico
- independent scientists in the US and Mexico

We convened these parties during several workshops from December 2015 to February 2017.
