ODFW will present its Biological Status Review of Wolves in Oregon to the Fish and Wildlife Commission at a public meeting next Friday, April 24 in Bend. The report is now available (see Exhibit F).
The Wolf Plan calls for initiating a process to delist wolves from the state Endangered Species Act when Oregon reaches the conservation objective of four breeding pairs for three consecutive years in eastern Oregon. This objective was met in 2014. The Commission will use the Biological Status Review to evaluate whether to move forward with a delisting process.

The draft 2014 Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Annual Report is available online. It includes the 2014 update for Oregon’s Wolf Population. Nine wolf packs and six new pairs of wolves were documented in Oregon in 2014. Oregon’s minimum known wolf population at the end of 2014 was 77 wolves, including eight breeding pairs.
ODFW staff will brief the Fish and Wildlife Commission on the report at the Friday, March 6 Commission meeting in Salem.
