Urge Wyoming's Governor to Stop the Wolf Hunt
As nature-loving people who treasure Wyoming's amazing natural beauty and abundant wildlife, we, the undersigned, call on you to end wolf hunting in the state.
Wolves aren't just important icons of the American West. They are are an important part of healthy ecosystems.
For example, ecosystems in Yellowstone that had be degraded by overgrazing recovered with the reintroduction of gray wolves to the area. The result: healthier riparian areas and important habitat for the birds, fish, and other wildlife near the area's rivers and streams.
We do not believe that the state's current management plan accounts for these important ecological benefits. We also do not believe that the state's current management plan provides sufficient assurances that wolves will not be hunted past the point of viability.
For all these reasons -- and because we want our travel, tourism, and tax dollars to support gray wolves -- we urge you to end wolf hunting in the state of Wyoming.
