From Defenders of Wildlife in the USA:
|Keep Wolves Protected: Stop a Delisting Catastrophe!|
|If you love wolves, we need you to take action immediately.The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is deliberating removing nearly all Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in the lower 48 states, with the possible exception of the Mexican gray wolf. This delisting would be a conservation nightmare.We’re trying to send 100,000 signatures to the Obama administration demanding that wolves keep the federal protection they need to ensure their recovery in the wild. Help us reach 100,000 signatures for wolves, before it?s too late
More than 560 have been killed this season alone, and that number continues to rise.
Delisting would turn wolf management decisions over to the states. Montana, Wyoming and Idaho — all states where wolves have been delisted — have become free-fire zones. More than 1,100 wolves have been killed as a result of hunting and trapping in the Northern Rockies, since Congress stripped them of Endangered Species Act protection in 2011.
Wolves’ lives are at stake and we need to pull out all the stops to ensure they remain protected under the Endangered Species Act. Tell the Obama administration — the important work of wolf recovery is NOT FINISHED — don?t turn back the clock on almost 40 years of wolf conservation.
