The State Game Board has received several proposals for re-upping and expanding protective corridors for wolves on state land on the eastern edge of Denali National Park. Current buffers which protect wolves from hunting and trapping along portions of the Stampede Road and the Parks Highway are scheduled to sunset. One of the expansion proposals is from the National Park Service. The agency has long opposed environmentalist’s efforts to increase the buffer, but assistant superintendent for resources, Philip Hooge says the current situation justifies expansion.
