Stop killing wolves and start educating people as to why wolves are an important part of keeping environments balanced by maintaining biodiversity that contribute to a healthy ecosystem.

Wolves keep the population of old and sick animals in check. If wolves disappear then hundreds of other animals will be affected. Wolves do not eat everything from their prey, and what they do leave behind feeds countless other mammals and birds.

If wolves died out, there would be more plant eating animals and they would eat too many plants, leaving many areas overgrazed. Wolves are very important!
