Conservation Group Pursues ESA Citizen Suit Process Against FWS for Delay in Developing National Wolf Recovery Plan

The Center for Biological Diversity commenced the Endangered Species Act (ESA) citizen suit process by delivering a sixty-day notice letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) of its intent to sue over the agency’s failure to develop a national wolf recovery plan. The planned lawsuit would seek an order requiring FWS to draft a recovery plan that includes all populations of wolves in the contiguous United States.
