The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has rescheduled the public hearings on their proposal to delist gray wolves across most of the U.S., and extended the public comment period to December 17. America’s wolves need us now more than ever – it’s time to stand up and be heard!
With the comment period extended and only three public hearings scheduled to determine the future of our nation’s wolves, it is all the more important for wolf advocates to speak out. Click here to submit your comments before December 17, 2013.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to remove Endangered Species Act protection for most gray wolves across the United States. This decision could forever change the future of gray wolf conservation in our country.
Gray wolf recovery in the U.S. is not complete. These wolves face rabid anti-wolf politics, aggressive lethal control, unsustainable hunting, intolerance and other threats across the entire country, and haven’t yet returned to suitable habitat in many parts of their historic range. By delisting them now, USFWS would be turning their backs on one of the best wildlife conservation stories in U.S. history before it’s finished.
We’re pulling out all the stops to urge the Interior Department to step up to its responsibilities and follow through on our nation’s commitment to restore gray wolves. Join us – Help spread the message: America wants wolves! Don’t turn your back on gray wolf recovery before it’s complete.
