Say Goodbye to the Alexander Archipelago Wolves on Prince of Wales and accompanying islands, and, for that matter....eventually on Planet Earth.
The Department of Interiors' announcement that it will not provide Endangered Species Act protection to the Alexander Archipelago Wolves is a significant one for environmentalists as well as the timber industry in Southeast Alaska. Had the wolf been found worthy of listing, the listing process would have impacted timber sales throughout the Tongass National Forest. One cannot help but speculate that the logging industry swayed this decision.
Conservationists and environmental groups have long sought Endangered Species Act protections for the wolves of the Alexander Archipelago. The fight over Tongass wolves goes back at least two decades. Secretary Sally Jewell of the Department of Interior is expected to make a decision regarding the endangered status of the Alexander Archipelago Wolves on Prince of Wales islands by the end of this year.
