Tell Interior Secretary Deb Haaland to restore wolves' protections
Dear Secretary Haaland,
Last spring, an estimated 1,500 wolves lived in Idaho. By the year’s end, a full third of those wolves had been killed.
This is far from the only example of the harm facing wolves in the states of the Northern Rockies. Idaho has passed a law allowing for 90% of its wolves to be killed, and Montana has passed legislation allowing for wolves to be killed in nearly any way imaginable.
This past hunting season, nearly 1 in 5 of Yellowstone’s wolves were killed after a recent change in Montana law repealed their protections in the areas immediately bordering the park after they strayed across the invisible, manmade park boundary.
If this isn't an emergency for our wolves, then what is? We need to protect these canines before they're wiped out for good. That’s why I’m urging you to declare an emergency and restore the gray wolves’ protections under the Endangered Species Act.
