Pacific Northwest Gray Wolf Management Act of 2015

This bill prohibits any wolf species, subspecies, or population segment of Canis lupus in Washington, Oregon, and Utah (covered states) from being treated under any status of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, including as an endangered species, a threatened species, an essential experimental population, or a nonessential experimental population.

The covered states shall have exclusive jurisdiction over the management of wolves within their borders.

A covered state may not provide protections to wolves that are greater than the protections that would be provided under the Endangered Species Act of 1973.
