Government-supported wolf eradication programs began in the United States as early as 1630 because the animals' existence conflicted with the agricultural interests of an expanding nation. These efforts continued for years, until both gray and red wolves were nearly exterminated. Mike Phillips, director of the Turner Endangered Species Fund, led both the Red Wolf Recovery Program and the project to return gray wolves to the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem. Phillips will examine the past, present, and future of wolf recovery, particularly in western Colorado, which has become the keystone for these efforts.
