Land and Wildlife Issues
Help save wolves, bears and other wild predator animals in Alaska. S.J. RES 18 is legislation that would revoke the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s rule protecting wildlife on Alaska national wildlife refuges. Protections for denning wolves, hibernating bears, and even other predators on national preserves in Alaska are at stake. If the protections are stripped, then the killing of wolves and their pups via den killing, aerial gunning, snaring, and baiting would be legal. Please take action by urging your senators to oppose it here.
Help save the Mexican gray wolf from extinction. In the coming weeks, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be making decisions that will dramatically impact the world’s most endangered gray wolf. Namely, they’ll settle on how many captive Mexican gray wolves to release into the wild next spring. Please urge the agency to release a substantial number of grays in New Mexico and Arizona next spring here.
Don’t let Congress destroy the Endangered Species Act. Congress is moving quickly to gut the Endangered Species Act, America’s strongest and most important law for protecting wildlife. Please ask your members of Congress to oppose efforts to weaken the Endangered Species Act, here.
