Protect gray wolves!

The U.S. Department of the Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service has announced that they will be issuing a proposed rule to delist gray wolves in the contiguous 48 states from the Endangered Species Act, removing the protections afforded them by that law. This political move jeopardizes wolves nationwide, and would pave the way for trophy hunting of wolves in states where the ESA currently protects them, such as Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Oregon. Further, it hinders the possibility of wolves returning to other states where there is suitable habitat.

The last time wolves in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin lost federal ESA protections, nearly 1,500 of them were killed in just three seasons and many were pups. This proposed rule is scientifically unsound and politically motivated; we must speak out now to stop it.

Dear U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,

I oppose the U.S. Department of the Interior's Fish and Wildlife Service proposed rule to delist gray wolves in the contiguous 48 states from the Endangered Species Act. Removing ESA protections now would jeopardize the fragile recovery that wolves have only just begun after having been hunted to near-extinction. It would also expose imperiled populations to the horrors of trophy hunting and trapping.
