FOUNDATION FOR WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT
Ensuring ungulate populations recover in areas negatively impacted by wolves
Tired of wolves interrupting your hunt and displacing your wildlife?
F4WM has saved an estimated 100,000+ elk, moose, deer, and livestock, with science-based predator management.
F4WM has removed 865+ wolves with just over $565,000 membership and sponsor dollars, with zero tax funding. That's less than $655 per wolf, funded by Sportsmen, Ranchers, concerned citizens, and a few Grants. Without the F4WM program, the Idaho Wolf Control Board would be charged with removing the same wolves. Their average expense to investigate livestock depredations and remove problem wolves averaged $9005 per wolf in 2016, $8003 per wolf in early 2017, and more than $9000 per wolf in 2018... 65% of which, has historically been funded by Idaho state tax dollars. 865 wolves x $9000 per wolf= $7,785,000... 65% Tax funded= $5,838,750 State Tax Dollars potentially saved by implementation of our Wolf Harvest Reimbursement Program.
YOU CAN HELP
Your memberships and donations directly reimburse ethical hunters and trappers for expenses accrued while harvesting wolves.
We are currently searching for volunteers to assist with developing new fundraising chapters in other areas, to host Fundraising Banquets and membership drives. If you would like to volunteer, please contact:
