Wolves have been scientifically shown to enhance biological diversity in their ecosystems. and this area is one.
Wolves reduce the domesticanimal-like behaviors of elk and other ungulates which have caused failures of willow/aspen new growth. Whenwolves return in ecologically effective numbers (much larger numbers than exist in the Northern Rockies at present!), they help regrowth of thes plants by causing ungulate behavior to change into a more natural active movement.
Everything, Beaver, Songbird, even mountain lion and grizzly are helped by wolf presence.

Even if you do not know or study such environmental effects, there is growing understanding and literature on this fact.

Submit your comments against the delisting of the Gray Wolf , and add further comment about the damage done by Idaho, MT, WY, MN, WI, state wolf management policies. Those policies of killing prevent the wolf from assisting naturally healthy redevelopment of native North American ecosystems, of which a large wolf population is a VITAL omponent.
