I need your help to save wolves in Greater Yellowstone and make sure that these magnificent animals have a lasting future in America.
By removing wolves in Idaho, Wyoming and Montana from the list of federally protected endangered species last week, the Bush/Cheney Administration has officially green-lighted state plans to kill as many as 70% of the wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies.
The announcement opened the door to the elimination of more than a 1,000 wolves by aerial gunning, trapping, poisoning and other lethal methods. It could also close the door on wolf restoration in Oregon, Washington, Colorado and other parts of the gray wolf's historic range.
And with southwest wolf recovery continuing to falter, it's time for a national plan to ensure a lasting future for our wolves.
Folks like you and me can make a huge difference for America's wolves. Here's how: Go online to http://action.defenders.org/ourwolves and urge U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dale Hall to adopt a national wolf recovery plan.
Will you help me convince federal officials to protect our wolves? Send your message online at:
Thanks for helping!
The above message was copied from the Defenders of Wildlife Website. I know that many of us on Blossom Forest are concerned about the well-being of wolves and this is one of the key issues of today. It's up to you if you're interested in following up on this, but I hope everyone can help the cause by raising awareness and supporting the fight to protect the animals we love so much.
