Public Hearing on the Oregon Wolf Plan

**SAVE THE DATE** Annual Report, Draft Management Plan before Commission in April 2017 ODFW staff will present their 2016 Wolf Annual Report and a draft updated Wolf Management Plan to the Commission at their April 21 meeting in Klamath Falls. Extreme weather in parts of northeast Oregon has delayed field work, including fixed-wing and helicopter flights and on-the-ground surveys of wolves. ODFW staff need additional time to complete their counts. For this reason, the 2016 Wolf Annual Report, which includes an updated wolf population count and number of breeding pairs, has been delayed from its usual March release date.

ODFW staff will also present a Draft updated version of the Oregon Wolf Management and Conservation Plan at the Commission’s April 21 meeting. The Wolf Plan undergoes a routine review every five years. The presentation will be informational only; the Commission is not expected to adopt a final updated Plan until later in the year. In-person public testimony will be taken at the meeting or send comments to odfw.commission@state.or.us Comments received by April 4 will be included in the Commission information packet.
