FOUNDATION FOR WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT

Ensuring ungulate populations recover in areas negatively impacted by wolves

 









F4WM brings those who want wolves managed- State Game management agencies, outdoor enthusiasts, hunters, and ranchers, together with those who have the ways and means to get the job done!

With wolf hunter success rates at less than 1%, wolves habit of traveling great distances, and reproducing by up to 40% annually, managing their ever growing numbers has proven a daunting task!


F4WM has saved an estimated 150,000+ elk, moose, deer, and livestock, with science-based predator management.

F4WM has removed over 1100 wolves with just over $750,000 membership and sponsor dollars, with zero tax funding. That's less than $700 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. 1100 wolves x $9000 per wolf= $9,900,000... 65% Tax funded= $6,435,000 State Tax Dollars potentially saved by implementation of our Wolf Harvest Reimbursement Program.


F4WM has issued almost 1100 reimbursements since its founding, and well over $200,000 in reimbursements for 271 wolves in the 2019/2020 season.

We now have new Montana Fundraising Chapters starting up for Sanders County, Flathead Valley, and Anaconda/Butte areas. We are excited to announce we will be reimbursing F4WM Members Montana Wolf harvest this season! Please email F4WM Executive Director Justin Webb, for more info on how to join or start a new chapter in your area at justin@f4wm.org


YOU CAN HELP!

Your memberships and donations directly reimburse ethical hunters and trappers for expenses incurred 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:
