The grey wolf is endangered due to being shot and poisoned as a pest by ranchers. Deforestation and changes in habitat affecting the abundance of its prey species have also been significant in its decline. Also when leaving protected woods it is a possible outcome to being hit by automobiles and trains. That’s the main reason why the grey wolf is endangered.
I would find a wildlife organization and become part of it. Then when I was in I would give them the idea to make a bill to send to congress so that the park range would expand and the Grey Wolf and other species could survive with an improved chance.
