Montana's plan to conserve and manage the state's recovered gray wolf population was approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in January 2004.

FWP works closely with USDA Wildlife Services (WS) the agency that investigates suspected wolf depredations and contributes its expertise to resolve wolf-livestock conflicts. Activities by FWP, WS, and private citizens are guided by federal regulations.
