Funding Available for Wolf Depredation Compensation

Boise--The Office of Species Conservation is now accepting applications for compensation for verified livestock losses due to wolves that occurred in Idaho during the 2017 calendar year. 

The deadline for compensation applications is December 31, 2017. This funding is made available through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services’ Wolf Livestock Demonstration Project Grant Program. 

As a condition of receiving compensation, each applicant must show documentation of a 50% non-federal match in the form of either cash or in-kind contributions, such as documentation of additional ranch input cost estimates due to wolves on the landscape. 

This can include documentation of additional riding time to check on livestock when wolves are present within a particular area, depredation prevention measures implemented, time spent with wildlife experts following a documented depredation, time and equipment used in searching for and gathering livestock after contact with wolves, etc. 

For additional information and to receive application forms, please contact Joshua Uriarte directly at 208-332-1556, or
