The State of Idaho, through the Office of Species Conservation (OSC) recently received funding from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) to reimburse Idaho livestock producers for livestock killed by wolves. The state also received funding to help offset the costs of wolf-depredation prevention projects implemented by livestock producers. Idaho was one of 10 states and a single tribal nation to acquire funding through the program. OSC procured these funds through the Services’ Wolf Livestock Demonstration Project Grant Program, which is a 5-year program authorized under the 2009 Federal Omnibus Public Lands spending bill.
OSC is now accepting compensation applications for verified livestock depredations caused by wolves. To be eligible for reimbursement, livestock losses must have been verified by USDA-APHIS Wildlife Services and have occurred during the 2014 calendar year. The deadline for submission of compensation applications is December 31, 2014.
Additionally, applications are available for Idaho livestock owners seeking to offset the costs associated with wolf depredation prevention projects. Depredation prevention funding will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
$100,000 for compensation and $100,000 for prevention projects is available. For additional information please contact Jon Beals at 208-334-2189, or email@example.com. For application forms, please visit OSC’s website at www.species.idaho.gov .
