Take action now: Wolves nationwide losing critical protections
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has proposed removing crucial Endangered Species Act protections from wolves across the lower 48 states.
Wolves in some areas of the country have recovered and we celebrate that success. However, this broad-brushed approach would put still-recovering wolves in the Pacific Northwest, southern Rocky Mountains, California, and eastern United States at real risk of never sufficiently recovering.
In areas where wolves have already lost Endangered Species Act protections, some states have allowed hunters to kill up to 60 percent of the existing populations--including wolf pups!
Please email Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell and President Obama and urge them to maintain protection for wolves currently listed under the Endangered Species Act.
