Abstract Gray wolves are listed as endangered under the Oregon Endangered Species Act (ESA). The law requires the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission to conserve the species in the state. Anticipating the re-establishment of wolves in Oregon from the growing Idaho population, the Commission directed the development of a Wolf Conservation and Management Plan to meet the requirements of both the Oregon ESA and the Oregon Wildlife Policy. When this Plan was adopted in December 2005, the federal government managed gray wolves in Oregon as an endangered species under the federal Endangered Species Act. The federal laws establish the current minimum level of wolf protection. In 2009, wolves were federally delisted in a portion of eastern Oregon and on August 5, 2010, a federal court decision had the effect of relisting. At the time of adoption of this updated Plan, all wolves in Oregon are federally listed as endangered and federal laws establish the current minimum level of wolf protection. Wolves remain listed as a state endangered species at the time of this 2010 update. So long as the wolf remains federally listed in Oregon as endangered, federal law may preempt provisions of this Plan (and associated administrative rules) that authorize harassment or take of wolves.
