We are particularly happy to see the House fund continued work towards coexistence between wolves and people, including ranchers and livestock operators. This includes $850,000 for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) to continue to advance predator-livestock conflict prevention, resolution and mediation in our state, as well as $1 million to fund research from the University of Washington that will help ensure wolf management decisions are made using the best available science.
