Update #1 ·

Government Shutdown? We’re Still Howling.

The government may have shut down, but they can’t silence wolf
supporters. Despite the shutdown, Defenders is going ahead with planned
trainings and public events for wolves on Wednesday in Sacramento and
Friday in Albuquerque.


Due to the shutdown of the federal government, the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service (FWS) has officially postponed its scheduled public
hearings on their ill-conceived proposal to remove Endangered Species
Act protections for most gray wolf populations. The agency had planned
to hold hearings in Sacramento, CA on October 2nd and Albuquerque, NM on
October 4th.

However, in anticipation of these hearings being rescheduled,
Defenders of Wildlife is still holding training sessions and gathering
of wolf supporter we’ve planned in these cities. The October 2nd Sacramento training session
and show of support for wolves will begin at 3:30 pm. The location is:
Clarion Inn, Comstock Room 1401 Arden Way Sacramento, CA 95815.


The October 4th Albuquerque training session
and show of support for wolves will begin at 3:30 pm. The location is:
Embassy Suites, Sierra Ballroom 1000 Woodward Place NE Albuquerque, NM
87102.
