Defenders announced on Aug. 20, 2010 that it will be transitioning its landmark wolf compensation program. Defenders will be providing additional support to some western states and tribes to aid in the transition as they take over compensation. The implementation of new federal legislation that provides funds to initiate state-run compensation programs will allow Defenders to focus on promoting coexistence by partnering with ranchers to prevent conflict between livestock and wolves.
In 1998, as wolves were successfully resettling in the northern Rockies, Defenders introduced a proactive conservation program to focus solely on conflict prevention. We have worked closely with ranchers; federal, state and tribal agency biologists and resource managers; researchers; and community and conservation groups to develop, field-test,promote, implement and share the costs of nonlethal wolf deterrents and best management practices for livestock in wolf country.
