Don't Delist Endangered Wolves

    1. Petition by

      Earthjustice

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently proposed removing federal Endangered Species Act protections across nearly the entire lower-48 states. We need you to act now!

This would be a disastrous setback for gray wolf recovery in the United States.

The recovery of gray wolves is an American success story, from their reintroduction in the northern Rocky Mountains to their comeback in the western Great Lakes states. But there are few, if any, gray wolves in the vast majority of their former range. If the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removes gray wolf federal protections, wolves in the Pacific Northwest, California, the southern Rocky Mountains, and the Northeast will face even more difficult odds than they do already.

It is critical that the administration not proceed with a blanket national delisting of the gray wolf, when wolves are still missing across so much of the U.S. landscape.

Urge President Obama and Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell to maintain protections for gray wolves in the lower 48 states.

      Every article I open lately is about killing wolves in about all states. Kill, kill, kill, seems to be the only solution here for your people. Why is it necessary to be so inhumane to these beautiful, majestic creatures? Let nature cull them accordingly like it always has in the past before the true varmits (people) came along and intervened. I just seen a picture of a wolf with pups! Shame on you people!

      Predators are essential for a healthy, balanced ecosystem. And look at that face!

      Wolves are an important part of the ecosystem, there is a shockingly tiny number of them left on this planet, and it makes absolutely no sense economically, ecologically, or morally to further endanger this tiny population of animals.
