The return of gray wolves to California
Pamela Flick is the Senior California Representative for Defenders of Wildlife and is based in Sacramento, where she works on federal land management focused on Sierra Nevada national forests and advancing conservation of carnivores, birds and amphibians. She is a founding steering committee member of the Pacific Wolf Coalition and was an active participant of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Wolf Stakeholder Working Group, convened to help shape a plan for conserving and managing wolves as they recolonize their historical habitat in our state. In this talk, Flick will provide an overview of the gray wolf’s natural history, ecological role, and current distribution and population in North America and California. She will discuss historic reintroduction efforts in the northern Rockies, as well as implications for wolf recovery in the western states with an emphasis on the importance of coexistence and moving beyond myths.
