Bring Back the “Twilight” Wolves

Wolves could soon be making a return to Washington state, including the Olympic National Park peninsula... and not just on the silver screen.

Wolves play a big part in the new movie Twilight: New Moon©, but these magnificent animals have played an even bigger role on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, the real-world setting of the Twilight© movies and books.

Tragically, the extensive wolf extermination campaigns of the late 1800s eliminated these animals from the Pacific Northwest landscape -- tearing a gaping hole in the natural balance and cultural tapestry that makes Washington so special. Now wolves are beginning to return to Washington, and state officials are considering how to best manage them.

Please enter your information below to sign our petition to Washington Governor Chris Gregoire and let her know that America wants wolves in Washington!
