URGENT: The USFWS is shutting down public comments TODAY on the rule to strip wolves of Endangered Species Act protections. Please submit your comment now.
Under this reckless, misguided plan, wolves in the Northeast, California, Pacific Northwest, Southern Rocky Mountains, and elsewhere would be left to be managed by state game agencies. These states would be free to allow hunting, trapping, even gassing of wolves within their borders. Still-recovering wolf populations could be decimated for sport and there would be no recourse under Secretary Jewell’s proposal.
Along with our coalition partners, we have launched a campaign to stop Secretary Jewell’s rule before it’s final.
