Comments on 7. Maintain and restore habitat connectivity (Chapter 12.B.7):

This is crucial to management of the woves and other species as well.

Ray DePuydt,  Kettle Falls WA

Absolutely agree.

Sean V Owen,  Seattle WA

Connectivity through out Washington must be maintained and restored to promote recovery of wolves as well as other spaces such as grizzly bears.

Tristan Higgins,  Seattle WA

Wolves are very adaptable and will maintain habitat interconnectivity so don't use this as a reason to buy more land and take it out of a working landscape.

I strongly oppose any plans to introduce wolves anywhere in Washington. Yes, I know they are already here. They will spread on on their own and will do great damage to wildlife eventually, and this should not be aided by the department.

Gregory R Field,  Seattle WA

Maintain, is the proper word ? DO you have enough time , money, and personal, to do this???That mean ,will the wdfw replace the herds they remove from todays standards??

Gerald W Guhlke,  Reardan WA

Establish a coridoor for the predators

Diane Sonntag,  Tenino WA

Controlling more property is all this is about.

Keith Olson,  Quinault WA

absolutly not!

Duane Bernard,  Rainier OR

A stronger evaluation of the state's habitat connectivity to other regions over time is needed to determine how it can be improved for the wolves, especially prior to delisting.

connectivity is whose science anyway?

Gary Nielsen,  Colville WA

Unnecessary. We do not need wall to wall wolves in the State. Wolves are extremely adaptable and can travese what ever habitat is befor them.

Wayne Vinyard,  Glenwood WA

This is a key elelment in the design and should have high priority in management as we learn about where wolf populations begin to 'flow' through the state and what their needs for conectivity are.

David Moen,  Oregon City OR

Not enough habitat to support these wolf packs

bruce oergel,  ellensburg WA

NO WOLVES

Habitat connectivity is crucial in maintaining genetic viability amongst animal populations and I am absolutely in favor of efforts to restore it.

Ryan Alexander Sparks,  Pullman WA

Who is going to PAY for this???

Jay Arment,  Spokane WA

Need more incentives for the landowners to want to do this!

Marcia avajas,  Bainbridge Island WA

You do not have the political or legal power to do this. Try prescribed burning if you want to increase unglant numbers.

This may be difficult but it is important for both the Wolves and the public.

Lois Neuman,  Vancouver WA

Critical for success

Need to extend planned parenthood and a conrtrol on population.
