ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT PROFILE
PROTECTION STATUS: Delisted
POPULATION TREND: By the 1960s, wolves were eliminated from Wisconsin and Michigan and nearly all wolves in the lower 48 were found in northeastern Minnesota. Thanks to federal protection, they began to grow in numbers in Minnesota and dispersed to Wisconsin and Michigan. In 2010, scientists estimated that Minnesota was home to approximately 3,000 wolves, with 700 each in Wisconsin and Michigan.
