A long and studied road

Document Actions

By focusing on the controversy of the Clinton, Bush and Obama years, Hal Herring allows us to forget that Richard Nixon signed the Endangered Species Act in '73 (HCN, 5/30/11). The Northern Rocky Mountain Wolf Recovery Team worked through Jimmy Carter's term. Ronald Reagan was in office when the Recovery Plan was signed. George H.W. Bush presided when Congress directed a series of studies that resulted in an Environmental Impact Statement on wolf reintroduction. In short, the restoration of wolves was the most carefully considered, thoroughly studied conservation action in our history.
