What Defenders Is Doing to Help Mexican Gray Wolves
Efforts to avoid conflicts with livestock gained some momentum last year with more landowners in Arizona and New Mexico joining Defenders of Wildlife in helping to keep livestock and wolves apart. In 2010, Defenders of Wildlife helped landowners implement projects to reduce conflicts between livestock and wolves, including installing fencing outfitted with fladry (red streamers attached to fences) and employing additional range riders to help keep wolves away from livestock.
