Gibson has studied many environmental conflicts and recently he has started wring on a blog called Howling for Justice. He believes it is important that people save these wolves because they belong in the ecosystem. Wolves were driven to near extinction in the early 1900's. In 1995 the Department of Fish and Game reintroduced the wolves into the wild to try and build them back into the ecosystem that they once thrived in. Wolves were delisted from the Endangered Species act making it possible for hunters in Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana to hunt them.
