Conservation groups want to “re-wild” the West by introducing wolves and other species
Conservation groups are pushing a plan to re-wind the West by introducing threatened species like wolves and beavers on federal land.
They claim it could mitigate drought, wildfires, and climate change, but ag groups say it could have severe consequences for livestock grazing.
The plan would reduce livestock grazing on federal lands by nearly 30 percent, totaling more than 17,000 square miles. Right now, there are no concrete plans to make this proposal a reality.
