By preventing large herbivores such as deer and elk from becoming overpopulated, wolves help maintain native biodiversity. 🍃Wolves typically live seven or eight years in the wild, though recent data suggests life span can be closer to four years where there is hunting or aggressive management by humans. With fewer threats, wolves have been known to live 10 years or longer. 🍃There are several subspecies of gray wolf; the species was listed as endangered for many years, and is still considered endangered in many parts of its historic range in the U.S., but was recently delisted (by Congress) in much of the Northern Rockies. Especially with the loss of protections under state and federal endangered species laws, awareness of the importance of the gray wolf is key.
