Don't Delist Endangered Wolves

Don't Delist Endangered Wolves

    1. Petition by


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.

      Wolves are a keystone species and are critical to keep a proper balance in the ecosystem. Do not let the financial interests of individuals (ranchers) and the self-serving interests of hunters destroy our habitat.

      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!

      Follow your dreams of a better world, and keep on trying, even when there seems to be little hope, because it is the right thing to do. We may never know how the seeds of kindness that we plant may help others on their journey, today, or even sometime far in the future.
