Save the Wolves! Stop the Slaughter!
The deadline to file comments on the federal government's caribou recovery plan is Wednesday, February 22nd. That’s just a few days away - we need your help!
If you aren’t familiar with the centre piece of the plan – it’s killing wolves. Yes, that's right - killing wolves is the solution we’re being sold.
We have been systematically destroying Woodland Caribou habitat, and in the process disrupting migration and reproduction, to the point where many herds are in peril - some numbering fewer than 200.
The federal government says we can fix the problem simply by shooting and poisoning hundreds, perhaps thousands, of wolves.
IT'S NOT RIGHT!
The Species At Risk Act legally required the federal government to produce a 'recovery plan' for the Caribou. The plan, unfortunately, is a bad joke - riddled with scientific errors and extremely questionable assumptions.
Sierra Club Canada with the help of Ecojustice has prepared a response to the ‘plan’.
It will have more weight if we can deliver it in the name of citizens (including you!) across this country from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
Please add your name to our submission below!
The caribou and wolves need you.
