The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to remove all endangered species act (ESA) protections for most of the gray wolves across the United States. This would be a conservation nightmare.
Delisting would prematurely turn wolf management over to the states, and we've already seen what can happen when rabid anti-wolf politics are allowed to trump science and core wildlife management principles. More than 1,100 wolves have already been killed in the Northern Rockies since Congress took ESA protections away from them in 2011.
Please send an urgent message to Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell — demand that wolves retain the federal protection they need to ensure their recovery in the wild.
