Nearly three decades later, the Endangered Species Act was signed into U.S. law. Recognized as an integral part of the rugged Rocky Mountains ecosystem, the Gray Wolf was rushed onto the endangered list. Due to the protections under the Endangered Species Act, the Gray Wolf has been reintroduced successfully in Yellowstone and central Idaho, and has migrated safely from Canada into northwestern Montana.
But the wolf is in danger -- again.
The Bush Administration plans to allow hundreds of gray wolves to be slaughtered on behalf of the livestock industry -- while the Gray Wolf is still listed under the Endangered Species Act! To seal the deal for the livestock industry, the Administration is also seeking to de-list the Gray Wolf entirely, thus removing all protections for this vital being.
The comment period on whether the Gray Wolf should be protected or not closes August 6. Instead of undoing protections for wolves, we should be guarding them more vigilantly than ever before, and continuing to restore them throughout their former range of wide habitats.
Sign this petition to tell the Bush Administration that you want to see gray wolves fully protected under the Endangered Species Act today.
