Tell USFWS to Keep Wolves on the Endangered Species List!




Take action now: Wolves could lose protections this month


Last year the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) released a five year review for the gray wolf that recommended removing Endangered Species Act protections from wolves across the lower 48 states. FWS has indicated they may go forward with this plan as soon as this month.

Please urge FWS Director Dan Ashe to maintain protection for wolves currently listed under the Endangered Species Act.


Wolves in some areas of the country have recovered and we celebrate that success. However, this broad-brushed approach would put still-recovering wolves in the Pacific Northwest, southern Rocky Mountains, California, and eastern United States at real risk of never sufficiently recovering.


In areas where wolves have already lost Endangered Species Act protections, some states have allowed hunters to kill up to 60 percent of the existing populations--including wolf pups!

Please urge FWS Director Dan Ashe to maintain protection for wolves currently listed under the Endangered Species Act.

Dear Director Ashe,

I am writing to urge that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service maintain Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves currently protected under the Act.

The recovery of wolves in the Northern Rockies and Great Lakes are remarkable examples of conservation successes. This success was only possible through the sustained protections provided by the Endangered Species Act.

Still-recovering wolves in the Pacific Northwest, southern Rocky Mountains, eastern United States, and California need these protections to continue on the road to recovery. We've seen recent and repeated examples of the degree to which states will enact management policies that put the long term survival of wolves at risk.

Recently, more than 50 members of Congress recently signed a letter urging that these existing Endangered Species Act protections be maintained. I urge that you grant that request and continue to protect gray wolves.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Sign Petition
