Why this petition matters

Why should you care?

Wild Canines are a very important part of wildlife ecosystem. For example, wolves maintain the balance by hunting rabbits and deer. If wolves are hunted down, the rabbits and deer will eat up too much of the farmers' crops. Foxes also keep mice and snake populations under control. Dingoes keep lots of kangaroos, rabbits, and snakes under control as well. 

Disappearing away ... too fast

There are between 9,840-19,200 remaining foxes worldwide as of the last assessment, which was in March of 2019, though the population is currently decreasing. Red wolves are practically going extinct. Right now, there are approximately 200 Red wolves in captivity. In the wild, there are only about 30-40 Red wolves. In Idaho, Governor Brad Little allowed hunters to kill 90% of the wolf population! Street dogs are not being hunted but their population is also decreasing. But only 5,000 to 14,000 Hyenas exist today in the wild. Thankfully, Dingoes aren't facing imminent extinction; there are anywhere from 10,000 to 50,000 across Australia, according to rough estimates. But certain Dingo populations, especially in the more populous southeast region, are declining and becoming less genetically pure. 

You can help!

How can you help? Well, start by giving some donations and signing petitions like this one. Then, maybe if you see a street dog or something, you can give them water. Then, make your own petition and maybe put up some posters! It would be awesome if you guys (whoever is reading this) could share this with your friends and family and help me out! I am trying to get to 500 to start and then maybe 1,000! 

               Thank you so much!
