Wolves: An Uncertain Future?

A writing activity dealing with the issues surrounding the reintroduction of the Mexican wolf into Arizona created by the Arizona Game and Fish Department © 2006

After visiting Web sites of various stakeholders, the students will write either a letter to the Arizona Game and Fish Department (grades 4 – 6) or a persuasive essay (grades 7 – 12) on a topic dealing with the reintroduction of Mexican wolves in Arizona.


The Arizona Game and Fish Department has determined that direct participation in reestablishment of the Mexican wolf would be consistent with its current program to reestablish extirpated (extinct in certain parts of its original habitat) nongame and endangered wildlife in Arizona and that agency participation is essential to representing the State’s interest in, and authority for, management of the wildlife resources that are held as a public trust for the people of Arizona.
