Stop Killing Wolves To Hide Tar Sands Impacts on Wildlife

Tell Canada to stop the wolf slaughter!

    1. Petition by


The government of Canada must hear from people around the world that the unscientific and sensless slaughter of wolves to protect tar sands and other industrial development is unacceptable. This wolf cull will ruin Canada's international reputation as a wildlife tourism destination - all to protect oil company profits, not wildlife. 

The wolf slaughter will kill over 6,000 wolves in the coming years. The wolves are being used as a scapegoat by government to lay the blame for reduced populations of caribou in Alberta.

The real culprit is not the wolves killing caribou, but the rampant deforestation and habitat destruction stemming from oil and gas development. Scientists and experts ridicule the plan to poison and shoot the wolves, but are being ignored by a government bent on extracting oil at any expense. Stop the slaughter, and focus on cleaning up the tar sands threat to all wildlife.

    2. New DeSmogBlog video: CRY WOLF: An Unethical Oil Story

      The government of Canada is still planning to expand the slaughter of wolves into the Alberta tar sands region. This unscientific effort is designed to protect the oil&gas and timber industries from accountability for their damage to woodland caribou and other iconic Canadian wildlife. Now that the public comment period has passed, concerned citizens from Canada and around the world need to tell the Canadian government to stop the senseless killing of wolves.

      Watch DeSmogBlog's new mini documentary - CRY WOLF: An Unethical Oil Story - about the wolf cull and the misleading "ethical oil" campaign to protect oil profits instead of wildlife. Take Action and spread the word! Stay tuned for more updates in the weeks to come.

      Ne pas détruire les animaux, les faire souffrir, les maltraiter, là, il y aura un déséquilibre de la nature si l'homme s'en mêle de tuer ces loups.
