Fri 4/26: Howl for the wolves! – Part 1. Goal: quarter million comments by 5/14.

Action #1 – Stop Trump from removing Endangered Species Act protections from wolves. – write a comment (Deadline 5/14) 

But first, a message and a meeting…

(A message from Jim Hines, Sierra Club California/Nevada Wildlife Team)
The howl of the wolf in the American wilderness may be heard no more.
A recently released proposal by the Trump Administration would remove all federal endangered species act protections for wolves and this opens the door for a number of individual western states to allow hunting of wolves. My Sierra Club wildlife team is working on getting people to the 7 upcoming public hearings across America on this issue. We are also asking people to submit their written comments using this link.

Help us protect wolves.

UPDATE: CA PUBLIC HEARING TO PROTECT GRAY WOLVES CANCELLED!

Mon – 11/19: “Mommy, what’s a wolf?” Update on the war on endangered species.

This is what happens when science and the knowledge of experts is respected.

This is what happens when they’re not.

Message from Jim Hines, Sierra Club.

Greetings Wildlife Advocates:

Tues – 11/13: The legacy of the GOP – making endangered animals extinct. – CALL THIS MORNING!

Action – They are voting to exterminate the endangered gray wolf today in the House. Call your representative this morning!

Kitty Block, acting president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, issued the following statement: “Some members of Congress and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are moving to remove federal protections from wildlife threatened with extinction. This is shameful pandering to a vocal minority of special interests and an affront to American taxpayers who have supported and underwritten decades of efforts restoring these species. The duty of the federal government is to protect threatened and endangered species, not to pander to trophy hunters and predator-control agents.”

Minimal script: I’m calling from [zip code] to ask rep. [_____] to vote “NO” on HR 6784 – “Manage our Wolves” Act.
