We're in the home stretch of reaching our $100,000 goal to help stop the potential aerial gunning of wolves in Idaho.

We only have around $13,000 to go -- won't you help put us over the top?

Please make an emergency gift to help us raise $100,000 to ensure that we can continue to fight for Idaho's wolves and other wildlife.

Emergency: Idaho green lights wolf extermination campaign!
Last week, the Idaho Fish and Game Commission approved a proposal to pay Wildlife Services $50,000 to launch a new round of wolf killing — which could include aerial gunning — under the excuse of artificially inflating elk herds to make hunting them easier. This plan is misguided and wrong!

More than 400 wolves have been killed in Idaho in the past year.

Your urgent donation will go towards our goal of raising $100,000 to help stop the relentless attacks on Idaho's wolves and other endangered species wherever they are threatened.

Please donate now to save Idaho's wolves — and protect the wildlife and special places you care about

Population counts are in — Lobos need a "genetic rescue"!

The annual population count is in for wild Mexican gray wolves in Arizona and New Mexico. While the numbers are up, their future remains uncertain. For this population to thrive, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service needs to take immediate action to help this imperiled species.

Lobos Counting on the FWS

Mexican Wolf (Credit: USFWS/Jim Clark)
The official annual count of Mexican gray wolves – also called lobos – is in! The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has finished counting the wolves, but the wolves are still counting on the Service to save them from extinction.
First, the good news: The population of wild Mexican gray wolves in Arizona and New Mexico increased from 58 last year to 75 now. But there are still only three breeding pairs. The lobos are doing their best to survive – finding each other, chasing elk, avoiding lawbreakers who would kill them just for being wolves, and having pups. They are inching, year by year, closer to their rightful place in the landscape and culture of the Southwest. But the truth is, they may not make it. They came through a tremendous genetic crisis in the past, when the last wild female Mexican wolf in the entire world was brought into captivity to literally save her kind. This limited genetic heritage, which I wrote about a few weeks ago, continues to haunt the lobos today. Because they are all closely related, they don’t have a large number of different traits carried in their genes. A high amount of genetic diversity is key to survival – it allows populations to change their biology when conditions change.
So although more wolves is cause for celebration, more pups from the same few breeding pairs won’t be enough to solve the genetic crisis. In order to express every bit of their genetic potential, the wolves needed to expand their population in the wild years ago. This opportunity was missed, over and over, when genetically valuable animals were sent back to captivity or killed, when packs were disrupted by being captured and moved, and when too few animals were released. Now, it will take heroic efforts, probably including extreme steps like in vitro fertilization using stored semen or eggs from wolves that died years ago, to try to improve the genetic future for Mexican gray wolves. The Service needs to get moving on this genetic emergency immediately. The first step is to release more wolves.
Releasing more wolves is a little more difficult than it sounds, but the Service has the authority, means, and responsibility to get this done in a hurry. Only two wolves have been released from captivity since 2006. One of these was illegally shot, and the other was returned to captivity the other day to give him a better chance at pairing with a female. The Service needs to get this new pair out in the wild as quickly as possible, and immediately get many more wolves warming up in the bullpen, ready to go, because the current slow dribble of new genes into the wild isn’t enough. The Service must assert its authority and do what needs to be done for the wolves’ sake. What the Service does now will determine whether or not our lobos can survive and recover.
When Mexican wolves need help, Defenders turns up the heat on decision makers. We count on you – who understand the importance of lobos in the big scheme of Nature – to help us pressure those in power to do the right thing. Please make sure you are getting Defenders e-alerts! That way I can let you know quickly when your emails, meeting attendance, phone calls, petition signing or letter writing can really make a difference. In March, we will be celebrating the 15th anniversary of the first release of captive-born Mexican gray wolves into the wild. There will be plenty to do to make sure the lobos are not just surviving, but thriving. I hope you will join me in this fight.

Urge Secretary Salazar to Protect Izembek National Wildlife Refuge

https://secure.defenders.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=2535

Urge Secretary Salazar to protect Izembek National Wildlife Refuge!

The proposed road would cut right through the heart of the refuge, destroying sensitive internationally recognized wetlands and fragmenting habitat.



Tell Secretary Salazar to finalize and adopt the the Fish and Wildlife Service’s decision to protect the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge.

Last week, the Department of the Interior indicated that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decided to reject a request to build a road through remote wilderness areas of Alaska’s Izembek National Wildlife Refuge.

The matter now goes up to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar who has 30 days to make the final determination that the road is not in the public interest.

Take action today – tell Secretary Salazar to finalize and adopt the the Fish and Wildlife Service’s decision to protect the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge!

The Izembek National Wildlife Refuge is internationally recognized for its important wetlands and wildlife habitat, and as congressionally designated Wilderness. The proposed road would have significantly damaged an ecologically sensitive and critical part of the refuge that migratory species like the Pacific Black Brant depend upon.

The Department of the Interior was faced with a difficult decision, but ultimately the Fish and Wildlife Service, which manages the Izembek Refuge, has made the correct one, given the wildlife and wilderness resources at stake.

Tell Secretary Salazar that you stand behind the Fish and Wildlife Service’s decision, and urge him to finalize and adopt the decision to deny this proposed road.

Allowing a road to be built through this pristine Wilderness would set a dangerous precedent that would threaten Wilderness protection in national wildlife refuges, parks, monuments, and other public lands across the country.

The Fish and Wildlife Service has made a responsible choice to protect the integrity of the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge and the wildlife refuge system as a whole. Please take a moment to show your support.

I want to urge you to demonstrate real conservation leadership concerning the proposed road through Izembek National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. The pristine wilderness of the Izembek refuge is home to almost the entire global seabird population of Pacific black brant and other vulnerable waterfowl, as well as brown bears, wolves, and wolverines.

The proposed road would cut right through the heart of the refuge, destroying sensitive internationally recognized wetlands and fragmenting habitat and would set a terrible precedent for the management of national wildlife refuges and designated wilderness.

While recognizing that there were difficult competing public interests surrounding the proposed road, the Fish and Wildlife Service made the correct decision in selecting the "no-road alternative" in its environmental analysis for the refuge, as there are safe transportation alternatives that don't harm the refuge.

I now urge you to finalize and adopt the agency's decision to protect the integrity of the Izembek wildlife refuge and declare the road not in the public interest.

TAKE ACTION: Help Stop a Delisting Catastrophe!


If you care about wolves, we need you to take action immediately.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is deliberating the proposed removal of nearly all Endangered Species Act protection for gray wolves in the Lower 48 states, with the possible exception of the Mexican gray wolf. This delisting would be a conservation nightmare.

We're trying to get as many members of Congress possible to sign on to a Congressional letter urging the U.S. Fish and Wildlife to keep existing protection for gray wolves in the Lower 48. Please send an urgent message to your representative and ask them to sign!

Delisting would turn wolf management decisions over to the states, and we've already seen what can happen when federal protections for wolves are eliminated. Montana, Wyoming and Idaho — all states where wolves have been delisted — have become free-fire zones.

More than 1,000 wolves have died from hunting and trapping in the Northern Rockies since Congress and the Fish and Wildlife Service stripped gray wolves of their Endangered Species Act protection.

Tell your representative — the important work of wolf recovery is NOT FINISHED — don't allow the clock to be turned back on almost 40 years of wolf conservation.

If the Fish and Wildlife Service follows through with a delisting decision, it could derail wolf recovery efforts in numerous areas around the country. In places like the Pacific Northwest, and in states that possess some of the nation's best wolf habitat, such as Colorado, Utah and California.

A delisting decision would represent yet another monumental setback for wolf recovery in the Lower 48. It would wind the clock back on one of the nation's greatest endangered species success stories.

Wolves' lives are at stake and we need to pull out all the stops to ensure they remain protected under the Endangered Species Act. Please — urge your representative to sign on to a letter to the USFWS — and stop a delisting nightmare!

It's up to you and me to ensure that our children's children will have the chance to cherish these magnificent creatures like we do today.

FEBRUARY 15 2013

I am writing today to ask that you sign on to the Congressional letter being circulated by Representative Peter DeFazio requesting that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) retain Endangered Species Act protection for gray wolves in the lower 48 states.

The USFWS is considering removing Endangered Species Act protection for gray wolves across large areas of the lower 48 states. They may move forward with a proposal as soon as this March.

The restoration of wolves has been hailed as one of the biggest successes of the Endangered Species Act since it was passed in 1973. But the important work of wolf recovery is unfinished and the animosity towards wolves that led to their extirpation in most of the U.S. years ago is prevalent in many areas where further wolf recovery is needed.

Delisting would close the door on an historic opportunity to revitalize some of America's best remaining wildlife habitat by bringing back these important animals. Delisting could also derail efforts to restore wolves to more of their historic range, including Colorado, the Pacific Northwest, Utah and California.

Studies in Yellowstone National Park have shown that wolves are important to healthy ecosystems, benefiting a host of species from pronghorn antelope, to songbirds, to beavers and fish. Wolves have also been a boon to local economies as a draw for tourists.

Someday, when wolves have recovered throughout appropriate and suitable habitat in their historic range, then delisting is an option worth debating. However, we are far from that day, and delisting now is premature and would be an avoidable conservation nightmare.

Please sign on to Representative DeFazio's letter to the USFWS asking them to continue to protect gray wolves in the lower 48 states under the Endangered Species Act. Wildlife conservation is an American value and wolves are part of our nation's and our children's heritage worth protecting.

Thank you for your consideration.

Emergency: Wyoming to Expand Wolf Killing this Week

More Wolves Targeted in Wyoming

Wyoming is opening more land to unlimited wolf killing as denning season begins, putting even pups and pregnant mothers at risk. Please donate today to help save Wyoming wolves and other imperiled wildlife. An estimated 1,084 wolves have been killed in the Northern Rockies since Congress stripped gray wolves of their Endangered Species Act protection in 2011. Whole packs, including mothers and pups, have fallen to hunters’ bullets, snares and traps in Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. Now, under a plan supported by the Obama Administration, Wyoming is scheduled to open even more of their state to the unlimited killing of wolves starting March 1st. This means that between now and October, in a large portion of some of the best wolf habitat in the state, wolves can be killed at will. Please help with an emergency donation to save the wolves of Wyoming and other wildlife

This is especially tragic given that spring is denning season. This expanded hunt puts the most vulnerable population of wolves – pups and pregnant or nursing mothers – in greater danger of being shot on sight. This kill-at-will approach is exactly the kind of flawed policy we knew would happen if wolves prematurely lost their Endangered Species Act protection – this is why Defenders is suing the U.S. Department of Interior to restore Endangered Species Act (ESA) protection for wolves in Wyoming. Please donate now to support our litigation to protect Wyoming wolves -- and protect the wildlife and special places you care about. We’ve witnessed firsthand what happens when the fate of wolves is turned over to states with extreme anti-wolf plans in place. In just two years more than 1,000 wolves are dead from hunting, snares and trapping. This accelerated killing clearly shows how states like Wyoming are treating wolves like vermin to be eliminated, not as wildlife to be managed responsibly, and why we need your help to support our efforts to fight the Wyoming delisting decision in court! There is no reason to allow this many wolves to be killed. It’s 100% rabid, anti-wolf politics that is driving state management. Make no mistake – there is a war on wolves. These magnificent and misunderstood top predators need our help. Defenders of Wildlife is America’s premier advocacy organization working to protect endangered wildlife. Our science and legal teams are renowned in the field. We are the voice of wildlife in Washington – and we are your voice as well. We will not let politics get in the way of our work for wolves. Your urgent support today will make a big difference.

Urge Barack Obama To Stop All Wolf Hunts In America

I'm sure there are many people, like me, who love wolves. But I just thought that you should know that in America, hunters take pride in killing wolves. So do farmers. The farmers kill the wolves because they say they are eating all their livestock. But did you know that wolves account for only 0.23% of cattle losses? When food is scarce, these beautiful, majestic animals turn to livestock to survive. And even if the wolves didn't eat the livestock, the farmers eventually would. In that sense, no food is going to waste. Also, did you know that the chance of being attacked by a wolf is less likely than being hit by a meteor? It's true. There were only three fatal attacks in the entire twentieth century. I think too many people have been reading, "The Three Little Pigs," and, "Little Red Riding Hood." Wolves are not evil, and they do not intentionally kill people I'm sure many people agree. So if you love wolves, please sign this petition. Thank you!

Petición Presidente de Castilla y León: Evite el exterminio del Lobo en Ávila

Lobo Marley. Ciudadanos por el lobo y el mundo rural

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 en este caso ASAJA, el cual 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.¡INDIGNATE!. 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.

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. Leer más 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)

Wolf crisis: A war without end?

Wolves Need your Help

The war on wolves in the Northern Rockies is relentless, and there is no end in sight, but we continue to fight back for these misunderstood predators. Please support our efforts to protect and restore wolves across the country . More than 1,100 wolves have been killed as a result of hunting and trapping in the Northern Rockies since Congress stripped them of Endangered Species Act protection in 2011. It's hard to fathom that just two weeks ago, Wyoming opened even more of their state to the unlimited killing of wolves . Protecting wolves is a long-term challenge, and we are committed to the cause. Please help us win the war on wolves with a generous gift today. It’s not just Wyoming. Across the Northern Rockies and beyond, anti-wolf extremists are mounting a well-funded and unrelenting attack:

The governor of Montana recently signed a bill into law that prohibits state wildlife officials from establishing protective buffer zones along national park borders, a measure that would have helped protect Yellowstone wolves. In Utah, a shameful and fiscally-irresponsible proposal by anti-wolf extremists just passed out of committee. If finalized, this measure will allocate $300,000 of taxpayer money to anti-wolf lobbying efforts in Washington D.C. – aiming to strip the last shreds of federal protection for nearly all gray wolves across the Lower 48. In Idaho, state officials approved a proposal to pay Wildlife Services $50,000 to kill more wolves.
We’re witnessing firsthand what happens when the fate of wolves is turned over to states with extreme anti-wolf management plans in place.

More than 560 wolves have been killed in the Northern Rockies this season alone -- and that number continues to rise. There is no reason to allow this many wolves to be killed. It’s 100% rabid, anti-wolf politics that is driving state management, not science. Make no mistake – there is a war on wolves. These magnificent and misunderstood top predators need our help. Defenders of Wildlife is America’s premier wildlife advocacy organization working to protect endangered wildlife. Our science and legal teams are renowned in the field. We are leading efforts and speaking out across the country on behalf of wolves, to help ensure that our nation’s imperiled wildlife receive the crucial protection they deserve and need in order to recover. We will not let politics get in the way of our work for wolves. Your urgent donation will make a big difference. Thanks for all that you do for wolves – and America’s endangered wildlife.

BREAKING: New and appalling attacks on wolves


This latest attack on wolves is reprehensible.

Wolf-haters in Montana have introduced a bill to legalize a long list of deplorable acts. This bill, SB 397 would:

Allow wolves to be choked to death in neck snares, killed in traps and hunted for 10 months of the year, including during breeding, pregnancy, denning and pup-rearing seasons;
Make it legal to lure wolves into traps using dead wolves - including dead pack and family members; and
Allow an unlimited amount of wolves to be killed in a given season.
This deplorable bill must be stopped! Please help with a donation today to save Montana’s wolves and other endangered wildlife.

If this bill passes, it will be legal in Montana to use snares to choke a wolf to death and then leave its body out as bait to try to kill more wolves in its pack.

You have to ask -- Who does that?

Only the Beginning

The Montana assault on wolves is not an isolated incident. It is only one facet of a well-funded, highly-coordinated and unrelenting effort by wolf-haters to significantly reduce the number of wolves and strip federal protection from most of them in the lower 48 states.

Just last week, anti-wolf lobbyists in Washington secured 72 Congressional signatures on a letter to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe demanding that wolves in the Lower 48 be completely delisted under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

It was a chilling show of force by the anti-wolf lobby, and a reminder of what we are up against. That’s why we need your urgent donation today.

Montana is a textbook case of what can happen when wolf management is turned over to a state that is politically dominated by anti-wolf interests.

Defenders is Mobilizing

Thanks to you and thousands of other wildlife lovers, the “kill wolves lobby” can be stopped, but make no mistake – we are in the fight of our lives for America’s wolves.

Our team is working long hours in Montana, across the Northern Rockies and here in Washington, D.C. to:

Organize and mobilize local activists to fight appalling state measures like SB 397;
Provide expert testimony at legislative hearings – these measures are not only reprehensible, they are based on politics, not science;
Garner support for wolves on Capitol Hill. More than 50 members of Congress signed a letter demanding continued federal protection for wolves; and
Mobilize online support from hundreds of thousands of people like you. Those letters, calls and emails do make a difference!
I won’t lie. We’re up against formidable foes who will stop at nothing to open America’s wolves up to unconscionable assault. But I believe we can beat them, and with your help, I believe we will!

TAKE ACTION: Mexican gray wolves hanging by a thread


Tomorrow, March 29th, marks the 15th anniversary of the Mexican gray wolf's re-introduction to the wild. Yet 15 years after this momentous event, the world’s most endangered wolves still hang by a thread.

Please urge the USFWS to act NOW to save the Mexican gray wolf!

The Mexican gray wolf, a distinct subspecies of the gray wolf, once roamed throughout Mexico and the Southwestern United States. Today the global population of these animals is tiny — roughly 75 individuals in the wild, and another 300 in captivity.

Unless the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) takes immediate and dramatic action, this magnificent animal could no longer exist in the wild.

Tell the USFWS to make rescuing the Mexican gray wolf a national priority.

The numbers tell only part of the story. The once thriving population was virtually eradicated in the wild and the few animals that survived offered only limited genetic diversity. Today, every Mexican gray wolf in the world is descended from only seven animals — and there are only three breeding pairs in the wild.

This lack of genetic diversity means every Mexican gray wolf in the wild has a higher chance of being susceptible to disease and is less likely to produce healthy pups.

In order to move Mexican gray wolves back from the edge of extinction, Defenders has created a three-point emergency rescue plan:

Release more captive wolves into the wild in order to address the genetic problem. The wolves to be released must be the right wolves genetically, and the releases need to be the first step in a more rigorous genetic improvement plan.
Complete a scientifically sound recovery plan. USFWS must complete this essential roadmap to recovery, and then implement it.
Establish at least two additional core wolf populations — and do so right away. Additional core populations of Mexican gray wolves will allow them to expand and give them a better chance for long-term survival.
Time is not on the Mexican gray wolf's side, but there is still hope if we act today. Wildlife lovers like you have helped bring back the peregrine falcon, the grizzly bear and a host of other endangered wildlife back from the brink. With the right energy and focus, Mexican gray wolves can join the list of species that have become conservation success stories.
Tell U.S. Fish and Wildlife: We need urgent action to save the Mexican gray wolf



The Mexican gray wolf is the most endangered wolf in the world. We can still save it if we act now.

Mexican Gray Wolves 15th Anniversary

March 29th marked the 15th anniversary of the Mexican gray wolves' reintroduction to their native southwest wildlands. While this is cause to celebrate, the current state of the Mexican gray wolf population shows that we must act now to assure the survival and recovery of the lobo. Defenders has a plan to ensure a lasting future for the world’s most endangered wolf. Anniversaries are often a time for balloons and confetti. Sometimes, though, it takes an anniversary to remind us of a bigger picture and more important message. On March 29, we mark the 15th anniversary of the initial release of Mexican gray wolves from captivity into the wilds of the American southwest. Before you cheer this victory and marvel at how fast time goes by, realize that celebration may be a bit premature. Mexican gray wolves will be in a lot of trouble soon if things don’t change.
In 1998, while serving as the director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, I was privileged to help release the first group of Mexican gray wolves back into the wild in Arizona. These wolves (lobos, as they are affectionately known) were on the brink of extinction in the mid-1970s. But thanks largely to the work of scientists overseeing captive breeding programs, we were able to release 11 lobos into the Apache National Forest of Arizona.
It was the first time in three decades that wolves roamed wild again in that state. Being there to see the wolves take their first steps into the wild was an unforgettable and moving experience, one that I will carry with me forever. Since then, Defenders of Wildlife and other organizations have worked closely with federal and state wildlife agencies, tribes and local communities to help people coexist with wolves and protect this most endangered creature.

Thanks to these efforts, 75 Mexican gray wolves were recorded in the wild last year. A climb from 11 to 75 is clearly nothing to sneer at, but an underlying crisis warrants placing a big, bold asterisk next to that tally.
All of the Mexican gray wolves in the world today are descended from just seven wolves that began the captive breeding program. Such a limited genetic heritage leaves the lobos with smaller litters of pups, increased susceptibility to disease, and less adaptability to changing conditions. And only three breeding pairs remained in the wild in 2012, further hampering the likelihood of producing offspring. Over the long term, these wolves’ very survival is at risk.
All of this points to a perfect storm of trouble for the beleaguered Mexican gray wolves that will only get worse in the next few years. These wolves have remarkable resiliency, but they can’t do it all alone. They need our help, and this 15th anniversary marks the perfect time to help give them the ultimate anniversary present: a better chance of survival in the wild.
Defenders of Wildlife is calling on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to implement a three-point emergency rescue plan for Mexican gray wolves in order to assure their long-term survival:
Release more wolves from captivity as the first step in a science-based genetic rescue plan.
Complete the Mexican gray wolf recovery plan, and implement it.
Move ahead as quickly as possible to establish at least two additional populations of Mexican gray wolves in the wild.

There’s a silver lining here. There are about 300 Mexican gray wolves in captivity at zoos and breeding centers, many of which have yet to breed. If we want to be able to celebrate many more anniversaries of the date of their original release, the Service needs to repeat its actions from 15 years ago by releasing more of these wolves from captivity into the wild.
Mexican gray wolves are an icon of the American southwest. They are near and dear to my heart as well as the heart of many who have invested time and energy into their recovery. The 15th anniversary is an important time to reflect on how far these wolves have come, to be sure. But let’s not just stand by and watch the inevitable decline start to happen. Now is the time to act.

You have to ask yourself: Could this be the future for wolves in America?

The Montana assault is but a grisly taste of what life may look like for wolves all across the Lower 48 if the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) knuckles under to pressure from wolf-haters to delist these animals.

Just a few weeks ago, Washington lobbyists secured 72 Congressional signatures on a letter to USFWS Director Dan Ashe, demanding that nearly all wolves in the Lower 48 be stripped of Endangered Species Act protection.

The letter reads in part:

“Wolves are not endangered species and do not merit federal protections. The full delisting of the species and the return of the management of wolf populations to State government is long overdue.”

Are they kidding??? Wolves are still absent from huge parts of their historic range, including California, Utah and Colorado. And, if our current experience with state control in the Northern Rockies is any indication, federal protection is critical to their survival and recovery!

It was a chilling show of force by the anti-wolf lobby, and a reminder of what we are up against. That’s why we need your urgent donation today.

Montana is a textbook case of what can happen when the debate on wolf management is driven by rabid anti-wolf interests.

Kill ALL the Wolves
Posted by Dave Dillon (cause founder)

It starts with you
TAKE THE PLEDGE
This site is totally dedicated to killing wolves and just about anything else that comes into their sites. In a humane society this should never be allowed a world where even small children are encouraged to pick up a gun and slaughter wildlife. These people have no morals and abuse just about anyone to breaths a word about well I thou breathing words now I'm shouting and beg you to do the same. Yes we all know that this thing happens but we don't need it thrust in our faces. Facebook block other sick groups like child abusers and sexual predators and these pages should be on that same banned list. .

http://links.causes.com/s/clJ1pS?r=92CI

Update #1
Posted by Dave Dillon (Cause Leader) on Apr 11
I have just posted the message below on their vile wall. If only we can get Facebook to think in this way. Keep reporting and also keep clicking on the photos on their page and reporting them and hopefully FB will get pissed off and give in to public pressure. If you murdering bastards are so right in slaughtering these animals how come that since March you only have 269 members where as I managed to get over 2600 to oppose and report this site in a little over 12 hours?

INTERVIEW: Defenders Of Wildlife Wolf Conservation Expert Suzanne Stone

September 17, 2012

Defenders Of Wildlife Wolf Expert Suzanne Stone

On U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Ending Protection for Wolves

Human-wolf relations have changed a lot over the course of America’s history, from the spiritual reverence of early Native American indians to the fear-based reactions of European settlers that resulted in hundreds of thousands of wolves being killed.

On the verge of extinction, wolves were one of the first animals protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act, and a wolf reintroduction program under the Clinton Administration in the mid-’90s brought the majestic predator back to Yellowstone National Park for the first time in decades. But with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service lifting protection for wolves in Wyoming two weeks ago, the future of the species in the American west is currently in serious jeopardy.

We spoke with wolf conservation expert Suzanne Stone, from the non-profit Defenders Of Wildlife, to find out why the USFWS changed its previous ruling on wolves, why humans continually demonize the species, and what’s currently being done to protect them.








How did you get involved in wolf conservation?

In 1991, my first task as a college intern for the interagency team was to interview people on both sides of the wolf issue. Wolves were eradicated nearly 60 years prior, and few residents were old enough to remember them in the region. Despite this, many people still considered them “devil dogs,” and assured me that no one wanted them back. I couldn’t understand how the same person could love their dogs and not appreciate the wolf, the ancestor of all dogs. My professors chided me for “majoring in all things wolf,” and that has been my life’s work since.



How did you get involved with Defenders of Wildlife?

Former Defenders Vice President Bob Ferris hired me after he complained that he was tired of tripping over me. He claims that he had some of the same ideas for projects in the region, but I beat him to a few of them. Jokingly, I told him he could fix this problem by hiring me. He called a few months later and asked if I would seriously consider a job working for him. That was 13 years ago. I’d long admired their pragmatic, entrepreneurial approach: They saw a problem and found a clever way to fix it. They were also the only group to help us when I went to Washington, DC with Michael Blake, the author of Dances with Wolves, to fight against a bad bill that would’ve stopped the recovery of wolves in Idaho and Yellowstone National Park. But that’s a whole other story…







From Little Red Riding Hood to the Liam Neeson film, The Grey, it seems like humans have always demonized wolves.

Twenty five years ago I believed people were just unfamiliar with wolves, and would change their attitudes once they learned that the scary myths weren’t true. But The Grey is a good example that shows humans are still trying to use wolves to frighten themselves in the most unrealistic ways. Wolves are typically afraid of people, and for good reason. Check the scoreboard: Humans won the us-versus-wolves fight a long time ago! In the west, no species has been more persecuted. When humanity is allowed to express its darkest nature through prejudice, fear and hate, these are always targeted at innocent victims. During the wolf eradication efforts, people burned wolves at the stake, wrapped their pups in barbed wire and hung them, and other horrors. It wasn’t a simple matter of exterminating a critter; it was a violent campaign to destroy the last wolf from the landscape. And they were almost successful. For generations, the wolf was simply a one-dimensional character in scary movies and fairy tales.



Why do you think humans have this need to turn wolves into the boogeyman?

I’m still searching for that answer. Perhaps we know we’re missing the one thing that wolves have never lost: true wildness. Wolves today are no different than they were 10,000 years ago. If you look into the eyes of a wild wolf, there is something there more powerful than many humans can accept.



You’ve been working in wolf restoration programs since the late ’80s, serving as a member of the 1995/1996 wolf reintroduction team. Can you talk about why that program was so important for wolf conservation?

As Europeans were settling the west, in our country’s rush to destroy wolves, few people stopped to question if the species was important to our ecosystems. Generations later, in the 1960s, a new appreciation for nature swept through the country. This led to the creation of the federal Endangered Species Act. Wolves were one of the first species listed under the ESA, but were almost entirely gone by then. We brought 66 wolves from Canada, and released 35 in Idaho and 31 in Yellowstone. Within a decade, scientists began recording evidence that wolves do play a crucial but unique role in maintaining healthy ecosystems. We’re seeing the benefits wolves bring by helping disperse deer and elk herds away from wetlands and meadows. As a result, new trees and bushes are thriving in places where they haven’t since wolves were eradicated. This provides new habitat for songbirds, beaver, fish and other species. Wolves also provide important food resources for grizzly, eagle and other scavengers.







On Labor Day weekend the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service announced they’re lifting federal endangered species protection for wolves in Wyoming. What’s their motivation?

They’ve openly complained that they’re tired of dealing with wolf conflicts, and the agency essentially flip-flopped by approving the state wolf plan they originally rejected the first time Wyoming proposed it. At the time they rejected it, the Service explained that the proposed predator zone that covers nearly 90% of the state would violate the Endangered Species Act. Later, a federal judge tossed out the Wyoming plan for the same reason. In the predator zone, wolves can be killed by anyone at any time. What’s changed is the politics surrounding wolves. The Clinton administration brought wolves back, but the Obama administration is allowing states to start eradicating them again under a plan that protects fewer than 500 wolves in the entire 6-state region. I don’t understand why, but it’s clearly politically driven.



My daughter and I went to Yellowstone, primarily to see wolves in the wild. Have any studies been done on the economic impact ecotourism has on Wyoming? It seems to me that the wolves bring in a LOT more tourism dollars than they cost ranchers in terms of livestock losses.

You’re right. The return of wolves has increased tourism revenue to our region more than $35 million annually, above and beyond the costs associated with their occasional predation on livestock. Wolves are also a year-round attraction, which has helped motel and restaurant owners tremendously. Many of those businesses once closed down during the winter. Now, winter is a popular season for Yellowstone wolf watchers, so they can stay open year-round.





When Defenders of Wildlife learns that wolves will soon be shot on sight in Wyoming, what can the organization do to help stop the slaughter?

Unfortunately, we’re prohibited from taking legal action for the first 30 days because we’re required to give the federal government a 60-day notice that we intend to litigate. The last time the government removed federal protections for wolves in Wyoming, all known wolves in the predator zone were killed. It was heartbreaking. One man I’d never met before called me to boast that he’d personally chased a wolf for 30 miles on a snowmobile before the exhausted animal collapsed and he shot it. I hope that the federal courts will once again throw out the administration’s delisting rule and restore protection for wolves before we lose them all… but we have no guarantees.



You specialize in non-lethal techniques for reducing wolf/human conflicts. What solutions do you see for the problems in Wyoming, and similar wildlife conflicts around the world?

Defenders and others have proven that livestock losses can be reduced to near-zero levels with good deterrents and a little cooperation. Our Wood River Wolf Project in central Idaho is a good example: We’ve managed the project for five years in the Sawtooth National Forest, where wolves and more than 10,000 sheep coexist from June through September. So far this year we’ve lost four sheep in one incident, and used non-lethal tools like high beam flashlights and air-horns to prevent further losses. Non-lethal methods are effective if used correctly, and cheaper than most traditional lethal control efforts (helicopters, sharpshooters, etc). Most of our regional residents are tired of the never-ending conflicts over wolves, so they’re ready to find solutions and move on. We have a lot of details about these methods on the Defenders of Wildlife site.



Where do you hope to see wolf conservation efforts in 3-4 years, on the 20th anniversary of the wolf reintroduction program?

I hope to see a day when the future of wolves is secure– when they’re not being pushed back toward becoming endangered again. I hope to see a local politician say publicly that wolves should be managed like other native species, and that we all need to get past the fairy tales and scare tactics to find a way to make it work. I hope to see a day when “Crying Wolf” is not a more popular sport than baseball in the region, and to see more people agreeing to work together to fix the problems. That may take longer than 3-4 years, but I still believe that people are able to change the world in powerful ways. Whether that’s for good or ill is up to us… –Bret Love
