A Decision With Dire Consequences

Gray Wolf (captive) Int Wolf Center © Joel SartoreJust last week, Defenders learned that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service may be moving forward with their proposal to remove all Endangered Species Act protections for most of the gray wolves across America. This one decision could forever change the future of gray wolf conservation and set a catastrophic precedent for prematurely delisting species that haven’t yet fully recovered.

Please send a message to Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell — demand that gray wolves retain the federal protection they need to ensure their recovery in the wild. »
