Poll Finds Strong Public Support for ESA… and Wolves

Scientists should make wildlife management decisions, not politicians. Ninety-two percent recently polled are in agreement with that view, and support is equally as strong for the Endangered Species Act.

The points are timely because the Continuing Budget Resolution being debated in the U-S Senate takes up both those items, as well as possibly removing E-S-A protections for wolves. Derek Goldman with the Endangered Species Coalition says they aren’t party-line issues, either…

“Across all political ideologies, Americans support the Endangered Species Act and recognize that it’s a safety net for protecting fish, plants and wildlife that are on the brink of extinction.”

Goldman says support for the ongoing recovery of gray wolves under E-S-A in Wyoming and other “wolf states,” came in at 78-percent. He describes that as likely a surprise based on what the public has heard and read recently on the topic.

“I think there’s a small, but vocal, minority that’s putting out this idea that the wolf is the enemy, and this poll shows the opposite. Americans recognize the gray wolf as part of our wildlife heritage.”

The poll was paid for by the Endangered Species Coalition, which did similar polling six years ago with similar results.
