Gray wolves have been removed from the endangered list as their population in the Great Lakes and Michigan region has increased considerably.

The statistics was revealed by Michigan Department of Natural Resources in the year 2014 put the population at 636 in Upper Peninsula. The first survey was conducted by scientists in the year 2013 after 23 wolves were hunted down in Upper Peninsula region. Following the order by federal Judge hunting in the region was stopped and the status of the wolves was made endangered.

Well, this is not the first time the wolves were removed from endangered list this happens on and off informs David Mech from the University of Minnesota specializing in Wildlife, Fisheries, and Conservator Biology. The scientists made their point clear on removing wolves from endangered list while writing a letter to US Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewel. In response to this Mech added that when the population was under threat protection was needed, and now they are on the road to recovery he stated.

The change in status is vital to inform Mech.
