Last month, we posted a video of Interior Secretary Jewell speaking at an event at the Center for American Progress. During that event, she was asked a question about her proposal to eliminate Endangered Species Act protections for most of the nation’s gray wolves. In response, she recounted being asked by a young person in Rhode Island not to delist wolves.
The young person’s name is Alyssa Grayson and she recorded the a video reply to Secretary Jewell, once again asking her to do what the science says and maintain protections for gray wolves. Watch the video:
We now know that science does not support this plan. An independent peer review panel examined the proposal and unanimously determined that it is not supported by the best available science. Please ask Secretary Jewell to do what the science says and withdraw this proposal and resume the efforts to recover wolves across the country.
