DNR Removes Gray Wolves, Bald Eagles From Endangered Species List

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has removed bald eagles, gray wolves and snapping turtles from their list of endangered, threatened and special-concern species on Monday. Twenty-nine species were removed from the list, 180 plant and animal species were added and the statuses of 91 species were either upgraded or downgraded. Rick Baker, the DNR’s endangered species coordinator, says the list’s purpose is to help certain species – not confine and isolate them.
