Threat Looms for Wolves Despite Victory

Last week, wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies won a major victory when a federal court reinstated federal protections for these animals.

But with Idaho officials still seeking to kill hundreds of wolves, Montana likely to follow1 and Wyoming officials still pursuing a deadly shoot-on-sight wolf management plan2, our work to ensure a long-term recovery for these magnificent animals is far from over.

Please take action today to urge Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to seize this opportunity to get things right for wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies.

Federal officials now have an opportunity to take the lead and work with state governments, ranchers, conservationists and other stakeholders to move away from hostile rhetoric and political deadlock and toward long-term recovery for some of America’s most iconic wolves.

We need your voice to urge federal officials to provide the critical leadership needed to move forward with a science-based solution for our wolves.

Urge Secretary Salazar to push for a new collaborative effort to develop a wolf recovery plan based on science -- not politics -- to ensure a lasting future for our wolves.

Last week’s important court decision marks a vital turning point in our fight keep wolves alive in the region.

But with increasing hostility toward wolves in the region, our wolves run the fatal risk of being caught along the same old battle lines.

Please send your message today.

Together, we can ensure the survival of the wolves you and I have fought so hard to restore to the American West.

Sincerely,

Rodger Schlickeisen
President
Defenders of Wildlife


P.S. Please forward this message on to others who care about wildlife so they can lend their voice to the fight to save wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies.

DECEMBER 21, 2010

Just hours ago, the Center for Biological Diversity initiated a lawsuit against Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to protect wolves across all of the United States.

We were able to file the legal action today because of the generous, triple-matched donations to our Endangered Species Action Fund over the past two weeks. Thanks to all who contributed so quickly.

I'm writing you now because the Center's the group that fights hardest for -- and wins -- protections for species on the brink of extinction. And we'll need additional funds to see this case and others through. Please help by making a donation today to the Endangered Species Action Fund. A Center donor will triple-match any gift received by Dec. 31, so your donation will be worth three times as much.

In lock-step with Bush-era policies, Salazar has already allowed hundreds of wolves to be killed in the Northern Rockies, Great Lakes and even the Southwest, where just 42 wild wolves remain.

In April 2011, Salazar will begin stripping federal protection completely in the Rockies and Great Lakes, opening the door to thousands more of these majestic animals being shot and poisoned.

The Center asked Salazar earlier this year to develop a nationwide wolf recovery plan instead of piecemealing the three existing populations to death. A recovery plan would ensure wolves are reintroduced to wild areas in the Northeast, California, Utah, Colorado and the Pacific Northwest. It would also require updating of the wildly inadequate recovery goals for the Northern Rockies, Great Lakes and Southwest populations.

Salazar has refused to even respond to our legal petition. So today, with the help of our supporters, we filed a formal "notice of intent to sue" to save wolves, the first step in a lawsuit to force the government to back away from killing wolves and begin planning for their nationwide recovery.

Please help us win this critical suit and save more than 250 other species threatened with extinction due to Ken Salazar's anti-endangered-species policies. Donate generously to our Endangered Species Action Fund by Dec. 31.

The Center's legal team has the best win rate in the environmental movement, succeeding in 93 percent of our cases and achieving real, on-the-ground protection for more than 500 imperiled plants and animals and more than 200 million acres of habitat.

With your help, our team will save the wolf, wolverine, Pacific fisher and all 250 imperiled species denied protection by Salazar in the past month alone.

Thanks so much for helping to save America's imperiled plants and animals.

First, the bad news: misguided aerial gunning of wolves in Idaho could begin soon. Now, the good news: Already, more 800 caring Defenders supporters have stepped up to help fund our work to prevent this tragedy and save these wolves.

If you haven't already done so, please make your contribution to day to help us save Idaho wolves and protect other imperiled animals. Even $5 will help!




Stop Needless Wolf Killing



Idaho wolves like these could be targeted by aerial gunners this year.



Donate now to help prevent aerial wolf killing in Idaho and support other wildlife-saving efforts.
Share on Facebook

Aurélie –

It’s a terrifying scene: a helicopter hovers low over the woods, the sudden crack of gunfire and an imperiled wolf is killed.

A year-end, tax-deductible donation of as little as $5 will help support our efforts on the ground and in the courts to save Idaho wolves from this awful fate and protect other imperiled wildlife. Please donate now.

Western Wildlife Services — the federal government’s chief wildlife-killing agency — is gearing up for a campaign of aerial killing in 2011 in a misguided attempt to increase elk numbers for hunters to kill.

The targets? Wolves in parts of Idaho’s National Forests. These wolves are no match for federal gunners in helicopters. But, with your help, we can work to stop the killing.

Donate now to help save wolves.

Under proposals now being considered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service more than 50 wolves — supposedly federally protected wolves — could be targeted for death this spring at the hands of federal agents.

Last summer, a federal judge restored life-saving Endangered Species Act protections for these wolves. But that hasn’t stopped officials in Idaho from seeking their deaths… or Wildlife Services from drafting a gruesome plan to kill these magnificent animals.

To stop the killing before it begins, our crack legal team is tenaciously fighting in the courts and our staff in Idaho is working hard on the ground.

But we need your support, Aurélie. If you've never donated to Defenders of Wildlife, we need your help now!

Please make a contribution today to support our Campaign to Save America’s Wolves and save the lives of wolves in Idaho’s National Forests.

To win the difficult fight ahead and other wildlife emergencies, we need to raise at least $211,000 before midnight Eastern Time Friday.

We need just 41 people from Alabama to meet our goal of 2,011 dedicated supporters for the New Year, but even one donation from someone in Bussy- Saint- Georges will make a powerful difference.

From experience, your donations really do make a difference. Caring supporters like you helped us win the legal fight to restore protections for wolves in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. And they helped us stop an earlier Wildlife Services plan that would have allowed for the gassing of wolf pups in their dens and wolf sterilization schemes.

The killing could begin in just a few short months. But our actions to save these wolves need your support right now.

Make your contribution today and help stop aerial wolf killing in Idaho before it starts.

Help Wolves In The West Recover

Thanks to the recent reinstatement of Endangered Species Act protections, there is hope for the grey wolf. Yet, states are still looking for ways to kills these animals. Idaho Fish and Game officials released a plan that would reduce the wolf population in their corner of the Rockies to as few as 20 animals over the next five years. And in Wyoming, state officials still maintain that wolves should be shot on sight.
A long-term recovery plan is vital to the survival of these wild animals, and we can help make that a reality. Ask Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to pursue a science-based plan that would help maintain the wolf population in the Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies, as well as keeping a regulatory process in place to secure its continued success.

The backlash against wolves is growing to a fevered, killing pitch. I've never seen it worse.

The Center for Biological Diversity is fighting right now to stop the killing, but we need your help. Please make an emergency donation today to our Wolf Legal Defense Fund.

In the Rocky Mountains, Idaho is threatening to cease its wolf-management program, giving individuals free rein to kill wolves as they please. Wildlife Services, a federal agency, has proposed killing hundreds of Idaho wolves with rifles from helicopters and by gassing wolf pups in their dens.


In the Great Lakes, the Interior Department is preparing to strip federal protection of wolves yet again, allowing state agencies to kill wolves as well.


In the Southwest, ranchers have filed suit to condemn two of the last remaining New Mexico wolf packs to death.

The fight to save these three wolf populations will cost $60,000, and to succeed we need to raise the money by November 15. We can't wait to act while wolves are dying and politicians fan the flames of hatred higher each day. Will you make an emergency donation to protect wolves today?

Here's what we'll do with your contribution to our Wolf Legal Defense Fund:

Stop Wildlife Services from killing and gassing wolves;
Legally intervene on the wolf's behalf in the Southwest so two of New Mexico's last packs are not condemned to die;

Derail the Interior Department's plan to allow Wisconsin and Michigan to kill wolves for trumped-up "conservation purposes;"

Rally tens of thousands of supporters to stop bills moving through Congress right now that would permanently strip wolves of federal protection.

Thank you in advance for supporting our work at this pivotal moment.

For the wolves,

The fevered, lethal backlash against wolves is getting even worse.

The federal government just canceled the reintroduction of a pack of wolves into the mountains of eastern Arizona.These wolves are essential to saving the Southwest wolf recovery program and maintaining a healthy wolf population -- but the state of Arizona is pressuring the feds not to allow any new wolves unless they can be killed at the whim of the livestock industry.

So many wolves have already been killed or permanently removed that only 42 wild wolves are left in the Southwest -- and the livestock industry is in court seeking to completely eradicate two more packs. The entire Southwest wolf recovery program is hanging by a thread.

The Center for Biological Diversity is fighting right now to stop the killing, but we need your help. Please make an emergency donation today to our Wolf Legal Defense Fund.

In the Rocky Mountains, Idaho is threatening to give individuals free rein to kill wolves as they please. Wildlife Services, a federal agency, is trying to kill hundreds of wolves with rifles from helicopters and by gassing wolf pups in their dens.


In the Great Lakes, the Interior Department is trying to strip federal protection from wolves so that state agencies can kill them.


In the Southwest, ranchers have filed suit to condemn two of the last remaining New Mexico wolf packs to death, and the state of Arizona is blocking the reintroduction of new wolves unless they can be killed to protect the livestock industry.

The Center's fight to save these wolves will cost $60,000, and to succeed we need to raise this money by November 15. We can't wait to act while wolves are dying and politicians fan the flames of hatred higher each day. Will you make an emergency donation to protect wolves today?

Here's what we'll do with your contribution of $35, $50 or more to our Wolf Legal Defense Fund:

Stop Wildlife Services from killing and gassing wolves;
Legally intervene on the wolf's behalf in the Southwest so two of New Mexico's last packs are not condemned to die and Arizona can't block wolf reintroductions;

Derail the Interior Department's plan to allow Wisconsin and Michigan to kill wolves for trumped-up "conservation purposes;"

Rally tens of thousands of supporters to stop bills moving through Congress right now that would permanently strip wolves of federal protection.

NOVEMBER 17, 2010

The fall issue of Endangered Earth, the Center for Biological Diversity's newsletter for members, is just off the press -- and as of today it's also available to you online.

The Center's work to restore wolves to the American landscape has covered a lot of ground over the years, but it took on a fresh urgency in 2010 as wolves came under renewed attack in the Southwest, northern Rocky Mountains and Midwest. This issue's cover story looks at our major new campaign seeking a national recovery plan for gray wolves,a roadmap for widely reestablishing these majestic animals across the habitat areas and corridors they need to thrive. We also track the Center's recent victories for wolves in the face of politically driven attempts to take away their protections under the Endangered Species Act, which would lay them bare to increased killing by hunters and government agents.

Also in this issue, read about:

One of our newest campaigns to save species threatened by a warming climate -- what we’re doing to protect animals whose mountaintop habitat is undergoing dramatic change as rising temperatures climb our peaks.
Our update on the Gulf of Mexico, six months after the oil spill disaster: the latest news on our work to protect the Gulf and its wildlife and to prevent catastrophic future oil spills.
Why the need for rapid action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is more urgent than ever -- and how our climate team is delivering that message to world leaders at international talks from China to Cancún.
Progress reports on more of the Center's campaigns to save endangered species great and small, from the African penguin to an Arizona orchid.

Think the Secretary of the Interior wouldn’t sell out our wolves and the Endangered Species Act? Think again.

We now know that Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has been negotiating directly with the governors of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, and we now have strong reason to believe that he is going to propose and promote legislative language to eliminate life-saving protections for wolves in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and portions of Washington, Oregon, and Utah.

Hundreds of wolves -- maybe more than a thousand -- could die.

Don't let Secretary Salazar sell out our wolves and the Endangered Species Act. Urge Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to oppose this awful plan.

Under Salazar's proposal, wolves wold be delisted and lose federal protection. They would also no longer be subject to the ESA at any time and under any circumstances except at the sole discretion of the Secretary of the Interior.

And no longer would it be possible for the American public to propose protection for wolves no matter how critically imperiled they become. And once the Endangered Species Act is weakened in such a way, it would invite further outrages... dealing a serious blow to the very foundation of the Endangered Species Act, the bedrock conservation law in this country.

Help save the lives of wolves and protect the Endangered Species Act. Please take action now.

Despite being the nation’s chief steward for endangered species, Secretary Salazar has demonstrated little to no concern for the Endangered Species Act, so we have no confidence that he –- or perhaps any future Secretary of the Interior –- would ever conclude that there is a need to restore ESA protections for wolves, no matter how egregious state efforts to reduce wolf numbers may be.

This problem began when Secretary Salazar –- freshly appointed to office and against the advice of numerous environmental groups and senior members of Congress –- who all said his action would be illegal –-approved the Bush plan for removing federal protections for wolves. As predicted, he lost the lawsuit and federal protections for wolves was restored.

Were the Secretary’s current proposal to be enacted, it would set a horrible precedent for further legislative weakening of the Act that could easily lead to the total unraveling of the ESA, and by itself would constitute by far the worst damage ever done to this critical law and to the cause of conserving biological diversity under any previous administration, Democrat or Republican.

Senate Majority Leader Reid can stop this awful plan, but he needs to hear from caring people like you.

This is an Endangered Species Act emergency. Please take action now!

We don't have much time to make our voices heard. Please write Senate Majority leader Harry Reid right now.

Emergency: Don't Let Salazar Sell Out Our Wolves and the Endangered Species Act

Targeting: The U.S. Senate and Ken Salazar (United States Secretary of the Interior)
Sponsored by: Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund
Recent reports suggest that President Obama's Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, is prepared to agree to, and is actively promoting, legislative language that would eliminate Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections for all gray wolves in the Northern Rockies, including those in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and portions of Washington, Oregon and Utah.

Not only would wolves lose protections, they would also be put beyond the reach of the ESA forever unless the Secretary, at his sole discretion, chooses to restore them to the list of threatened or endangered species. Even worse, under the language, there would be no ability for the American public to petition for these protections in the future... regardless of how egregious state wolf management plans become.

The proposal is arbitrary and strikes a blow at the very foundation of the Endangered Species Act. Hundreds of wolves -- maybe more than a thousand -- could be killed. And you and I could lose America's most effective tool for protecting imperiled wildlife.

We don't have much time to stop Secretary Salazar's plan. Please urge your senators to reject Interior Secretary Salazar's backroom deal to remove protections for wolves and harm the ESA.

This proposal is anti-science, anti-wolf and anti-democratic. I strongly urge you to do everything in your power to oppose it.

Thank you for considering my comments.

Wildlife Services is at it again: The federal wildlife killers are once again seeking authority to kill more wolves in Central Idaho using aerial gunning.

This terrible aerial gunning plan could kill hundreds of wolves in the area -- all to help state officials artificially boost elk populations so that hunters can more easily kill them.

Take action now: Speak out against Wildlife Services' terrible aerial wolf-slaughter plan for Central Idaho.

Idaho officials are claiming that wolves are the major cause of elk declines in parts of the state. But in 23 of the 29 elk management zones, populations of these animals are at or above population targets -- many of the areas experiencing declines in elk numbers contain few or no wolves.

And the Clearwater National Forest -- one of the areas targeted by Wildlife Services' aerial gunning plan -- was experiencing steep declines in elk numbers by 1988, long before wolves returned to the area.

But state officials are calling in Wildlife Services, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to exterminate entire wolf packs from the skies to artificially boost game populations -- even as wolves remain protected under the Endangered Species Act.

Speak out now to stop Wildlife Services' wolf-killing plan -- before the slaughter from the skies starts.

Earlier this year, thanks to the support of tens of thousands of Defenders supporters, Wildlife Services pulled back an earlier plan seeking to gas helpless wolf pups in their dens and surgically sterilize alpha wolf pairs.

But Wildlife Services' current wolf-killing plan still allows aerial gunningand seeks to punish wolves for doing what they do naturally: preying on elk and fulfilling their ecological role as part of a natural system. Science tells us that predator population levels are naturally maintained by their prey population levels -- almost never the other way around.

Take action now to help stop Wildlife Services' plan to use aerial wolf-killing to artificially boost elk populations.

Wildlife Services should certainly not be in the business of artificially boosting game populations. They should be fulfilling their mission to "create a balance that allows people and wildlife to coexist peacefully." Instead, Wildlife Services wants to expand their role as the federal government's wildlife hitmen.

Please take action today and speak out to help stop Wildlife Services' terrible plan to bring aerial gunning to Idaho -- before the killing starts.

Thanks for all you do to protect our wildlife and wild places.

Wolves Face Threat of Removal from Endangered Species Act

I saw this on Care2 and thought you'd like it as well.

Care2 is the largest and most trusted information and action site for people who care to make a difference in their lives and the world.Care2.com send We hate spam. We do not sell or share the email addresses you provide.20 commentsThey’ve been shot at from the air, chased down on land, trapped and poisoned. They've fled to higher ground to escape human beings and still continue to survive. Waiting, possibly, for people to understand their place on this earth, the wolf was at last given protection under the Endangered Species Act.

But last month proposals placed the wolf in danger of being exempt from federal protections. Pushed by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and governors from three Northern Rockies states, bills were proposed in Congress that open season on the wolf again.

This is the first time in the 40 years of the Act that Congress has been asked to exempt an animal from the Endangered Species Act, a precedent that could severely undermine the Act. It comes after several court orders struck down other plans by Salazar to remove wolves from protections.

Salazar is targeting the northern Rockies and Great Lakes wolves, but bills already introduced would strip protection from the Mexican gray wolf whose population is down to just 42 wild wolves and two breeding pairs.

"If they were stripped of protection altogether, there's no doubt the Mexican gray wolf would go extinct," said Michael Robinson with the Center for Biological Diversity. The Center has defended gray wolves for more than two decades, first suing the federal government to get the wolves out of the zoo and into the wild.

The Center notified the Interior Department in December that it will sue the agency unless the government crafts a plan to bring back wolves throughout their North American range.

An estimated 6,000 wolves live in the lower 48 states. Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, saying the more than 1,700 wolves in the Northern Rockies, were harming game herds and livestock. Pushing a Senate vote on a bill to strip wolves nationwide of federal protections, Crapo was backed by Republicans in Wyoming and Utah. Democratic objections stopped the bill.

Maryland Democrat Sen. Benjamin Cardin said the bill is an attempt "to solve politically what should be done by good science." When wolves reach young adulthood they sometimes travel hundreds of miles to find new territory. In recent years they gained a presence in Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Utah and northern New England. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is analyzing wolf genetics to learn how populations in different parts of the country relate to one another.

The Center says they benefit an area by stirring up elk and deer which allows vegetation to grow back, increasing songbirds and keeping coyote populations in balance.

“In 2011 we'll be ramping up efforts to beat back Salazar's plans and delisting legislation, pushing for a long-overdue nationwide wolf recovery plan, fixing the flagging Mexican wolf recovery program and stopping the killing of wolves in the northern Rockies and Great Lakes,” the Center states.

At least two bills would remove protections from wolves nationwide. Or wolves could lose protection in only Montana and Idaho where both states seek to drastically reduce wolf populations. Depending on the bill, wolves could lose protections in all of the northern Rockies. In Wyoming they would be shot on sight in 90 percent of the state.

Wildlife advocate efforts are trying to head off the bills in Congress, saying this politicizes an animal’s existence with no sound scientific backing.

Just when we thought the state of Alaska's war on wildlife couldn't get any more gruesome, the state is trying to kill wolves from helicopters on a national wildlife refuge.

What's more, Ken Salazar's Department of the Interior, which is charged with managing the refuge for the preservation of wildlife, is actually considering allowing this massacre to go forward. Alaska and Interior's rationale for the wolf killing is that Unimak Island's caribou herd is declining -- but there's little evidence that wolves are to blame.

Aerial killing is as inhumane as it is unnecessary. Wolves are gunned down from the sky or chased to exhaustion. In some cases, wounded wolves escape, only to experience a slow, painful death. And because the state's plan is to kill wolves during the pup-rearing season, pups may be orphaned and left to die when their mothers are killed.

Please, help stop the slaughter now. Click the link below to take action and tell the Interior Department to say no to aerial killing of wolves on our public lands.

Sample letter:

Subject: Do Not Allow Alaska to Kill Unimak Wolves

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Unimak Caribou Herd Environmental Assessment. I urge you to adopt Alternative A, the No Action Alternative, which would not allow the state of Alaska to kill wolves on Unimak Island. The Unimak caribou herd's population numbers have fluctuated greatly over the years, and there is no evidence to show that wolves are to blame for the current decline. There is also no evidence to show that killing wolves will increase the island's caribou numbers. The federal government must not support Alaska's foolhardy wolf massacre in a federal refuge and wilderness area.

Please take action by January 31, 2011.

JANUARY 5, 2011

Stop Aerial Gunning of Wolves on Federal Wildlife Refuge





The state of Alaska is continuing its war on wildlife -- by trying to kill wolves from helicopters. Remote Unimak Island, in Alaska's Maritime National Wildlife Refuge, is home to the Aleutian Island chain’s only naturally occurring populations of brown bears, wolves and caribou. Caribou numbers on the island have varied drastically over the past 100 years and have recently plummeted.

Despite the fact that there is no evidence that wolves are responsible for the recent drop in caribou numbers -- which is just as likely related in part to unsustainable state-permitted trophy hunting of caribou on the island -- the state is using the drop in numbers as an excuse to kill wolves in the name of "wildlife management."

Nearly all of Unimak Island is federally designated wilderness area. A state-run and federally permitted aerial hunt in a wilderness area is unprecedented. Federal biologists admit that very little is known about either the caribou herd or the wolves on Unimak Island. It would be the height of irresponsibility to blindly massacre the wolves in the face of so much uncertainty.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the agency within the Department of the Interior that manages the refuge, initially refused to allow the aerial wolf hunt but now appears to be caving to state pressure. The Service has completed an environmental assessment that concludes that the state’s proposal for “predator control management on the Refuge is necessary.”

The Service is accepting comments on its environmental assessment until Jan. 31. Please act now to tell the agency it must not allow the massacre of wolves on this federal refuge and wilderness area.

Wolves have NOT made a full recovery, nor can they as humans have set them on a sure path to extinction as governors from Alaska, Idaho, Wyoming, Minnesota, Wisconson, Montana, Oregon and Washington seek to push the federal government to get the wolf off of the endangered species list in the special interest of hunters.

Their natural habitat is dwindling though human land use which includes ranchers and cattle grazing, real estate developers, logging, mining and oil drilling. Their natural food source has been disrupted through poisioning and hunting of their natural prey. Not even mentioning what the BLM has done to decimate the wild horse population (another food source for the wolf).

They have less land and less prey than ever before making them more endangered now than ever before. We ask that you re-list the wolf as an endangered species and don't allow them to be killed for the thrill of hunters. If anything, relocate them where land and prey food are plentiful, far away from cattle ranchers, real estate developers, loggers, oil and mining companies.

Sponsored by: Center for Biological Diversity
A reality TV show -- "On Your Own Adventures" with Randy Newberg -- just broadcast two shows on the killing of a wolf in Montana.

This is the first televised wolf hunt in the lower 48 states, and billed itself as a show that "tackles the issue of wolf management head-on." Yet, no wildlife biologists were on the show nor was there any mention of the wolves' ecological value to the landscape or their long path to recovery.

Instead, the gleeful host crows, "It's the funnest thing I've done in years," after shooting the wolf with a high-powered rifle. Plus, the host/wolf killer calls wolf advocates "a bunch of wingnut screwballs" for trying to save the wolves. Apparently, in the world of reality TV, basic humaneness earns you screwball status.

Please -- help us save these wolves by sending an urgent message now to the producers that this is unacceptable, and then share with all your friends.

Ávila quiere ser espacio "libre de lobos". Eso significa exterminar los lobos de su territorio. Se trata de un acto ilegal e inmoral promovido por los sindicatos agroganaderos. Además ASAJA, recibió el año pasado una subvencion por parte de la Fundación Biodiversidad de 64.000€ para el desarrollo de la ganadería extensiva como pieza clave en la conservación del lobo.¡INDIGNANTE!. Sin embargo, quieren asesinar al lobo y así lo solicitan.

Su propuesta está fuera de la Ley y es un crimen: el lobo esta protegido en la zona al Sur del Duero de forma estricta por una Directiva Europea 92/43/CEE, al tratarse de un tesoro de nuestra fauna. Hay otras alternativas para la existencia del lobo, pero no interesa buscarlas: se pide un exterminio del lobo en Ávila.


Ayuda al lobo. Ellos no tienen voz.

To:
Miguel Arias Cañete, Ministro de Agricultura, Alimentación y Medio Ambiente
Miguel Ángel Garcia Nieto, Alcalde de Ávila
JUan Vicente Herrera Campo, Presidente Junta de Castilla y León
EVITAR EL EXTERMINIO DEL LOBO EN AVILA
Avila y otros municipios de la provincia ha aprobado una peticion ilegal para solicitar a La Consejeria de Agricultura y Ganaderia de Castilla y Leon EL EXTERMINIO DEL LOBO EN AVILA. La peticion esta promovida por los sindicatos agroganaderos los cuales estan fuertemente subvencionados con dinero publico que pagamos entre todos. Algunas subvenciones deben cumplir unos requisitos medioambientales entre los cuales se encuentra la proteccion del lobo con lo cual nos parece mas inmoral todavia. Estos sindicatos (ASAJA) buscan percibir fondos estatales para proteger al lobo y por otro lado tratan de matarlo. La Directiva de la UE 92/43/CEE establece una proteccion estricta del lobo al Sur del Duero por ser una especie prioritaria para alcanzar el estado de conservacion favorable del habitat.Que una especie, de forma natural, recupere territorio de su habitat natural es una muestra de que las cosas no van mal. Es una buena noticia. Y si esa expansion natural genera conflictos, hay que buscar el equilibrio, pero pretender eliminar todos los lobos de una provincia es una irresponsabilidad y un disparate. FIRMA Y AYUDANOS A RECORDARLES QUE ES UN ACTO ILEGAL Y CRIMINAL( sin acentos para traducir al ingles)
Sincerely,
