Last Chance to Help Southwest Wolves
Southwest wildlife supporters have just days to make your voices heard on three critical Mexican wolf issues: a proposed moratorium on wolf releases, new rules that make it easier to kill Southwest wolves and a five-year review and recommendations of future activities for the wolf's recovery program.
On July 31, the Arizona Department of Fish & Game and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will close their public comment periods on the issue. Please submit written comments to support wolf recovery efforts now while there's still time.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Ask state and federal wolf managers to make changes which strengthen, rather than weaken, the Southwest wolf recovery effort. Go to the DEN Action Center at <http://www.denaction.org/>http://www.denaction.org and click on alerts #386 and #387.
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend a wolf meeting in Arizona or New Mexico in June. Wolf supporters showed up and spoke up, even in the rural communities, and that has made a real difference.
