The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission will discuss the Wolf Conservation and Management Plan recommended by state wildlife managers at a special meeting in Ellensburg on Monday, Aug. 29.
The special meeting, which includes time for public comment on the plan, is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Quality Inn and Conference Center..
The commission, a citizens’ board appointed by the Governor to set Fish and Wildlife policy, heard an initial presentation of the department’s recommended wolf plan at a meeting Aug. 4 in Olympia.
Recovery objectives included in the plan are designed to eventually remove wolves from current state endangered species protective status. The plan also includes management strategies to address conflicts with wolves involving livestock, elk and deer.
The Commission is scheduled to take action on the wolf plan at its December meeting in Olympia.
