position with valid reasons. Cite specific data in your answer.
Answer:
The gray wolves should have been delisted from the federal endangered species list.
According to the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service a species is added to the list when it is
considered endangered or threatened species. When analyzing the gray wolf population
there are a total of 3,765 animals in the Western Great Lake States based only on this
quantity they would be classified as a vulnerable species. The rest of the population
must also be taken into consideration where in Alaska there are 7,700-11,200 animals
this sum would put them out of the vulnerable category. They should be off the list and
only be partially protected because the species has not reached a an endangered
category which would mean less than 2,500 individuals in the population size.
