In just a few weeks, the mass killing of wolves could begin in Idaho and Montana -- and not even newborn wolf pups and their nursing mothers will be spared.

We cannot stand by while this slaughter unfolds. On May 4, the wolf's federal protection will be lifted, and government agents will be free to open fire. After that, the states will launch public hunts, targeting wolves.

We must act now to call off the guns!

That's why NRDC is launching The Big Howl campaign to mobilize Americans everywhere to protect wolves in the Northern Rockies from the crossfire.

Add your voice now to our campaign. Tell Interior Secretary Salazar to reverse his decision to kick wolves off the endangered species list.

This is absolutely the wrong time to rip away federal protections from these struggling wolves. Over the past year, the wolf population in Yellowstone National Park has declined by 27 percent, with more than 70 percent of wolf pups succumbing to disease.

One pack alone lost all 24 of its pups!

If the federal protections are lifted on May 4 as planned, newborn wolf pups and their nursing mothers traveling outside national parks will be in the line of fire.

That's why NRDC and partners are filing suit in federal court to block this disastrous policy. But we must do more: we must raise a nationwide outcry that the Obama Administration cannot ignore.

And so we're calling on everyone who cares about wolves to take part in The Big Howl campaign.

Please call on the Interior Department to go back to the drawing board and submit this cruel plan to the kind of rigorous scientific review the Obama Administration has promised.

Take part in The Big Howl campaign.

Thank you!

      Wolves are too important as part of the health of the ecosystem to allow their demise in the interest of special interest groups.  They are a part of our county's heritage and need to remain so.  Instead of allowing them to be killed by hunters they need to be protected and other methods explored to allow coexistance between man and wolf.

      True righteous human beings will always support a life in harmony and peace, together with all their fellow species!
      Our world is in desperate need of righteous leaders who will guide their nation into a real civilized world, embracing and teaching respect, kindness and compassion towards all animals.
      Without these 3 things, mankind is never allowed to use "civilization" into their vocabulary...
