overview
petition
The purpose of this page is to raise awareness about the factors affecting the wolf packs inhabiting Yellowstone National Park (YNP). As of December 2012, eight wolves collared by researches and four non-collared wolves were killed by hunters outside the park’s boundary. Please note that we are not condemning hunting activities and that the killings occurred legally under Montana state law. Conservation organizations are asking to increase protection areas surrounding the park’s immediate boundaries to ensure these packs are not targets of trapping and/or hunting practices.

A brief history: After mass extermination in the 1900 – 1920s, wolves were eliminated from their natural habitat as these were viewed as pests. Further studies taking place in the 1940s relating predator-prey ecology built scientific evidence emphasizing the need for wolf conservation. In 1995 and under large controversy, 14 wolves selected from multiple packs from Canada were released into the park. In 1996, an additional 17 wolves were released into the park; thus completing a balanced number of specimens for natural reproduction and survival, which has been studied and monitored by scientists, conservation volunteers and park officials. In addition to daily observations (when wolves are within view), typically alpha members of the different packs are fitted with VHF or GPS collars so the packs can be tracked and studied.

Since the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone National Park, yielded data has shown a positive impact in the park’s ecosystem (http://oregonstate.edu/ua/ncs/archives/2011/dec/yellowstone-transformed-15-years-after-return-wolves), as well as a positive economic impact (http://www.georgewright.org/251duffield.pdf).

How can we help protect these wolf packs?

IMMEDIATE ACTION IT’S NEEDED AS THERE WILL BE A HEARING ON JANUARY 14 IN LIVINGSTON, MT TO DISCUSS THIS MATTER.

We need to write petitions, emails or letters to Montana’s government officials and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission asking to:

1. Permanently limit the trapping/hunting wolves’ quota in ALL areas adjacent to Yellowstone National Park. This may require modifications to the Wolf Management Units neighboring Yellowstone National Park.

2. Permanently close Wolf Management Units WMU-13 and WMU-16. These are the sections were most of the wolves from YNP were killed.
As noted in this map provided by the Fish Wildlife & Parks Commission, the areas requested for protection are minimal compared to the large area available to hunters. Areas of interest are at the bottom of this map, adjacent to Yellowstone National Park (Blue color). You will have to hover over the map to view these sections. We believe this would be a fair compromise for both sides: http://fwp.mt.gov/hunting/planahunt/huntingGuides/wolf/default.html.

3. Make it illegal to shoot collared wolves as these animals play an integral role within the wolf packs of Yellowstone National Park, research and monitoring.

Let your voice be heard!

Your comments will be sent to the following government officials:
Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks Director Hagener: jhagener@mt.gov
Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks Commissioners: fwpcomm@mt.gov
Montana Governor Bullock: governor@mt.gov
The governor's Natural Resources Advisor, Tim Baker: tbaker@mt.gov

Wolves naturally have large territories and don't understand man-made borders. Hunters seem to be lying in wait for grey wolves to cross the invisible Yellowstone Park borders, and shooting them as soon as they cross over into NoWolf Land – even if they are wearing a collar, an indicator that they are being studied in a research program. Collared wolves must be subject to clear no- kill federal and state laws. Collared wolves are being studied, usually funded by our taxes, to better understand their essential role in our environment. This research is critical, since wolves are nearly extinct in the United States! When collared wolves are killed, the research is set back, costing the taxpayers more money to re-start a new wolf to be studied, causes loss of important, expensive data, and delaying the research results that are needed ! They are being studied to track their territorial range, keep census and learn of their eating and hunting habits, to better protect them and surrounding livestock. There is increasing evidence that grey wolves shun humans and typically kill the sick and weak in herds, expertly culling herds (as opposed to hunters who typically kill the best of the heard for trophy display). They only kill what they need, instead of for sport, and do not exterminate large numbers in any herd (as do humans). They keep herds moving, which protects the flora from being overgrazed, as demonstrated in Yellowstone Park improvements since the grey wolf was re-introduced.

Very aggressive wild boars, which are increasing exponentially and are a definite threat to humans and the rest of the natural environment, attack humans, pets and livestock and destroy crops, and would be better controlled if preyed upon by grey wolves ! It is believed that someone imported wild boars from Russia, a very large and aggressive type, use to varied and even very cold climates, which escaped from a Texas farm 10 years ago or so, and is breeding with our less aggressive and smaller USA wild boars. Google wild boar in USA. They are in California, TX, throughout the south and now in Washington State; Idaho, Montana, Colorado, and Wyoming will be next! Humans and dogs have not been able to keep up with controlling this infestation, but grey wolves could be a big help!

FACTS EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE GREY WOLF
1. All dogs are descended from the grey wolf
2. All wolves originally evolved in North America (now almost extinct in America !)
3. Wolves have a very positive impact on environment, proven in Yellowstone Park
and elsewhere on flora and fauna, kill sick and old in herds,
and prevent herds from over-grazing
4. Wolves/dogs helped us evolve and are still helping us to survive
5. First domesticated animal by man, which helped ensure our survival !

Sound science is the hallmark of wildlife protection and conservation. But when the facts are cherry picked to serve a predetermined policy goal, everybody loses.

Sixteen of the nation's top wildlife scientists sent an urgent letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service expressing deep concern that their own field research was being distorted in order to justify the delisting of nearly all gray wolves in the lower 48 states.

This is the time for every wolf-loving American to speak up. Will you help us?

This alarming letter strongly supports Defenders' argument against this reckless proposal and reinforces what we’ve been saying all along: this decision consciously ignored compelling science in order to promote the premature federal abandonment of wolves!

We need support from people like you who know that truth. Your donation will equip Defenders with the support we need to continue our all-out campaign to stop this delisting before its too late.

Here's what these leading scientists had to say about the misguided delisting proposal:

"We do not believe that the rule reflects the conclusions of our work or the best available science concerning the recovery of wolves…"

The letter continues:

"Given the importance of wolves and the fact that they have only just begun to recover in some regions and not at all in others, we hope you will reconsider the Service’s proposal…"

How tragic it is that the FWS justifies the delisting plan by citing the work of these science professionals who clearly believe delisting is a bad idea.

The future of wolves is in your hands — please donate today to help protect these magnificent creatures.

You and I have worked too hard and for too long to get the urgent work of wolf recovery off the ground. We're not quitting now.

Sincerely,

Jamie Rappaport Clark, Defenders of Wildlife
Jamie Rappaport Clark
President
Defenders of Wildlife

This letter, authored by some of the leading wildlife scientists in the country, confirms our fears that sound science was not used in creating this delisting proposal. Please give an emergency donation today, and help support our efforts to stop this misguided proposal!

WOLF DELISTING IS AN OUTRAGE

The proposal to strip nearly all gray wolves from protection under the Endangered Species Act overtly disregards science!

Sixteen of the nation's top wildlife scientists sent an urgent letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service expressing deep concern that their own field research was being distorted in order to justify the delisting of nearly all gray wolves in the lower 48.

Defenders is working around-the-clock to help put a stop this misguided and dangerous proposal!

Make Sure FWS Gets the Message: Americans Want Wolves to Stay Protected

https://secure.defenders.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=2621

July 28, marked the halfway point of the 90-day comment period on the proposed delisting of nearly all gray wolves in the lower 48 states, and we're making a racket they can’t ignore.

The premature delisting of gray wolves flies in the face of sound science and is an invitation to a recovery disaster.

Please send an urgent message to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service – demand that they withdraw their delisting proposal.


I'm writing to you today to ask that you abandon and withdraw your proposal to strip Endangered Species Act (ESA) protection from nearly all gray wolves in the United States.

Since this proposal was announced, evidence has shown that the majority of Americans are opposed to this misguided plan. In fact, 16 of the nation's top wildlife scientists sent you a letter expressing deep concern that their own field research was being distorted in order to justify this delisting proposal.

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. Delisting the gray wolf will halt four decades of progress in its tracks and expose America's wolves to unwarranted and unrestrained killing.

This is precisely what has happened in Wyoming, Idaho and Montana, where the premature delisting of those states' wolf populations has led to the killing of more than 1,100 wolves. This race to the bottom in wolf management threatens to seriously undermine wolves' hard-won climb from the brink of extinction.

Delisting could also derail efforts to restore wolves to more of their historic range that has huge areas of suitable wolf habitat, including Colorado, the Pacific Northwest, Utah and California.

Wolves are an iconic, native species that play a vital role in restoring healthy ecosystems by keeping prey species in balance. Places like the Olympic peninsula and the Colorado Rockies could benefit both ecologically and economically from the return of wolves.

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.

Someday, when wolves have recovered throughout most of their historic range out west, and when states refrain from managing their wolf populations in a politically driven race to the bottom, then delisting is an option worth debating. However, we are far from that day, and delisting now will be an avoidable conservation nightmare.

The ESA sets higher recovery standards than the ones that this delisting proposal is being based upon. I demand that you finish the job of wolf recovery -- not just for the sake of wolves, but for all species protected under the ESA.

Thank you for your consideration.
