US Representatives Peter DeFazio of Oregon and Ed Markey of Massachusetts, with help from their fellow US Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona, circulated a pro-wolf letter among their 435 colleagues in the US House of Representatives. This letter urged the US Fish & Wildlife Service to keep federal protections in place for America's wolves in the 45 states where they are still protected under the Endangered Species Act.
PLEASE TAKE ACTION: Call the US Capitol switchboard: 1-202-224-3121. Ask for your US Rep and you'll be connected to his or her office.
1. Ask your US Representative if they signed the letter, and if not, would they please sign on because, as a constituent and a voter you support the lives of wolves because they are vital to a healthy eco-system, ensure biodiversity, and wolf depredation accounts for a mere .000029% of cattle.
If they signed the letter, thank him or her for doing the right thing!
Encourage them to keep voting to protect America's wolves and all of America's native wildlife.
3. For all wolf defenders, IN THE US AND AROUND THE WORLD, you are encouraged to contact Dan Ashe, Director of the US Fish & Wildlife Service.
Phone: 1-800-344-9453, EMail: www.fws.gov/duspit/contactus.htm
Urge Mr. Ashe to honor the pro-wolf letter he just received from 52 members of the US Congress, by keeping federal protections in place for America's wolves in the 45 states where they are still federally protected.
