Tell your Representative to protect wolves
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is poised to strip wolves across the lower 48 states of all Endangered Species Act protections! Wolves have only just begun to recover in large portions of the Pacific Northwest, California, southern Rocky Mountains and Northeast.
Gray wolves once roamed the vast majority of the country, but were nearly wiped out by government extermination programs. Their recovery in the northern Rockies and Great Lakes has been a success, but the job of returning wolves to the American landscape is still far from complete.
Right now members of Congress are ready to step in. Representatives Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) and Ed Markey (D-Mass.) are circulating a letter to the Service opposing the premature removal of wolf protections. U.S. Representative's Grijalva, Barbara Lee, Cicilline, Moran, Farr, Waxman, Blumenauer, Honda, McCollum, Schakowsky, Barber, Loretta Sanchez, Keating, Langevin, Himes and McGovern have already signed on as co-signatories.
Please call your member of Congress at the number below and urge him or her to save wolves by signing onto Reps. DeFazio and Markey's letter.
Then follow up with this email.
