Protect endangered wolves from anti-wolf legislation

Members of Congress have introduced damaging bills and amendments in this Congress to remove existing federal protections for wolves in the lower 48 states. And these anti-wolf legislators could succeed in their efforts, unless we fight back now.
Wolves have just begun to recover in some areas of the United States after being nearly wiped out by centuries of ruthless hunting, trapping, and poisoning. Despite fragile successes that have brought wolves back to the northern Rockies and the Midwest, they are still missing from a vast majority of their former range and are subject to mounting persecution even where they have been restored.
Urge your senators and congressional representative to stand up for wolves!
Federal protections for wolves in the lower 48 states are critical to securing the recovery of existing populations and allowing wolves to expand into other suitable habitat in places like northern California, the Pacific Northwest, the southern Rocky Mountains, and the Northeast.
The damaging anti-wolf bills introduced in this Congress would:
- Strip federal protections from wolves in Wyoming, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
- Remove federal protections for wolves in Washington, Oregon and Utah.
- Eliminate federal protections for a struggling population of Mexican gray wolves in the American Southwest.
If anti-wolf members of Congress get their way, the result will be more state-led killing of wolves and a blow to the Endangered Species Act, our nation’s safety net for imperiled species.
Together we must stand firm on behalf of wolves and the law that helped bring them back from the brink of extinction—the Endangered Species Act.
Urge your members of Congress to oppose all anti-wolf legislation in this Congress.
