Government Revisits Contested Wolf Recovery Plan

It has been 10 years since the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reintroduced the Mexican gray wolf into the mountains of southern Arizona and New Mexico. The agency is re-evaluating the policy, which is under attack from all sides.

As supervising editor for Arts and Culture at NPR based at NPR West in Culver City, Ted Robbins plans coverage across NPR shows and online, focusing on TV at a time when there's never been so much content.
