Tell President Obama: Keep Wolves Protected

Wolves across the country need your help now. The Obama administration is poised to make a decision before the end of the year to lift Endangered Species Act protections for wolves across the United States, including the Pacific Northwest, southern Rocky Mountains, Northeast, and elsewhere -- this could happen any day.

The Endangered Species Act has protected wolves in the lower 48 states since 1978. Recovery programs for wolves in the northern Rockies and Great Lakes have been a success, but the job of returning wolves to the American landscape is still far from complete.

In the past two years, federal protections for wolves have been removed in the northern Rocky Mountains and western Great Lakes, leaving management decisions to individual states. States in these regions have approved aggressive hunting and trapping seasons designed to drastically reduce recently recovered populations resulting in hundreds of wolves dying. State management programs are as gruesome as they are ineffectual.

These incredible predators won't return and thrive if the government strips their Endangered Species Act protections. Use the form below to tell President Obama and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service not to give up on America's wolves.
