Last chance to comment on wolf plan

 

November 20, 2020



People are invited to share their thoughts about wolf management as the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources updates the state’s 20-year-old wolf management plan.

This public input opportunity is available through today on the wolf plan section of the DNR’s community engagement website. The engagement website includes a questionnaire, online forum on topics related to the update of the management plan and a timeline of the update process.

Later in the process, the public will have an opportunity to comment on draft updates to the state’s wolf management plan. The DNR anticipates releasing the draft plan for comment early next year. More information about the update to the plan is available on the DNR website.

The DNR extended the wolf management public input period to Nov. 20, after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced it would remove the wolf from the federal threatened species list in Minnesota. The removal becomes effective Jan. 4.
