The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has announced that it has begun reviewing the status of the gray wolf in the lower 48 states under the Endangered Species Act and will publish a proposal revising the wolf's status "by the end of the calendar year."
Translation: gray wolves, by far the most populous wolves in the U.S., will probably lose their protected status and be at the mercy of hunters and trappers.
This is terrible news for the environment. Wolves need further recovery before their protections can be removed, but the Trump administration would prefer to let their cronies kill these wonderful animals.
Please sign my petition, asking the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service not to remove protections from gray wolves.
