Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/05/2021

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has open the application period for a newly formed Wolf Management Plan Committee. Beginning this month, the agency will begin recruitment for the WMPC with an open application period through March 19.

Organizations with an interest in wolf management are invited to visit the wolf management plan section on the DNR website to learn more about the required qualifications and how to apply for a seat on the committee.

The purpose of the WMPC will be to provide input, direction and recommendations to the department in developing an updated wolf management plan. To be inclusive of a variety of interest areas regarding wolf management, a specified number of plan committee seats will be made available by application to interested stakeholder organizations.

Representation on the committee will include hunting/trapping organizations, wolf advocacy/education organizations and agricultural/ranching organizations. Additional seats on the WMPC will be reserved for invited tribal and governmental agencies, the Wisconsin Conservation Congress and DNR technical staff support.

Among other things, the panel will meet to formulate a fall 2021 harvest quota recommendation following the current management plan and state statute.
