Resolution 14-1

Endangered Species Prey  Preservation

WHEREAS, the Endangered Species act of 1973, includes several predator species, who then prey on other species,

WHEREAS, the population of the prey species declines, while a successful recovery of an endangered predator species results in an unequal natural balance of predator and prey,

WHEREAS, Ex. Moose and Wolf, the Wolf population has exploded to a point that some areas now have implemented a wolf  hunting season , while the wolves food supply has decreased and they start preying on domestic animals and livestock,

THERFORE IT BE RESOLVED,  that the Montana Association of Conservation Districts encourage the Federal government to add an addendum to the Endangered species act to that requires preservation of prey for listed endangered predators.
