Tell the White House: Stop Delisting and Keep Wolves Protected

    1. Sponsored by

      Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is deliberating the proposed removal of 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.

Delisting would turn wolf management decisions over to the states, and we've already seen what can happen when federal protections for wolves are eliminated. Montana, Wyoming and Idaho — all states where wolves have been delisted — have become free-fire zones. Hundreds of wolves have been gunned down or trapped, and as the recent tragic killing of eight collared Yellowstone wolves outside the boundary of the park attests, the sustainability of wolves in the Rockies is in jeopardy.

Please send an urgent message to President Obama, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe — demand that wolves retain the federal protection they need to ensure their recovery in the wild.

      I love animals, and I personally think, that wolves should be protected, because they are extremely inportant to the world, environment, and to me.

      We need the wolves to keep other wild animals in check like the buffalo,elk,mule deer,etc. Leave them alone! They're supposed to be here...stop encroching on them!

      I used to respect Obama now that he's turned his back on American wildlife i've lost all respect for him.
