Will You Pay for Idaho's Aerial Wolf Kills?

Gray Wolf (Harry Bosen) Idaho officials want to recklessly gun down wolves from aircraft -- and they want you to pay for it.

State officials want the Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services to track down and kill up to two thirds of wolves in northeast Idaho. It's an unscientific plan aimed at artificially boosting big game populations.

Already, nearly 62,000 Defenders' supporters have urged President Obama not to use federal resources to carry out Idaho's misguided wolf cull.

If you haven't already, please sign our petition today -- and help us reach our goal of 75,000 signatures.

Oregon Wolf Looking for Love

Gray Wolf (Harry Bosen)A lone wolf from eastern Oregon (known as OR-7) has traveled hundreds of miles to become the first of his kind seen in California since 1924. His motivation? Finding love.

But OR-7's journey is bringing strong emotions from those who welcome wolves as well as those who are wary.

Defenders is working closely with federal, local and state officials as well as with people living in wolf habitat to ensure the lasting future of these amazing animals in the West.

Safer Shore in Cape Hatteras
