Help Save
Wyoming Wolves

Wyoming officials are suing the federal government, so they can remove as many as two-thirds of the wolves in the state. If they win, wolves lose: As many as 200 wolves, including mothers and pups could die.

Take Action red

Help us save wolves and send 30,000 messages urging Wyoming officials to drop their lawsuit by Monday November 27th.

Help spread the word. Forward this message to a friend.



Dear greywolf,

Wyoming has declared war on wolves. State officials have filed a lawsuit to compel the federal government to remove as many as two-thirds of the wolves in Wyoming. And, unless we stop them, as many as 200 wolves and their pups could die.

Last week, Defenders of Wildlife and allied conservation groups launched emergency legal action to stop Wyoming’s plan, but we need your help.

Take action now! Urge Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal and the state Attorney General to withdraw their lawsuit and get serious about promoting sustainable wolf management in the Northern Rockies.

Wyoming’s lawsuit challenges the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s refusal to approve the state’s wolf management plan and eliminate Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in their state.

The federal government had good cause to reject Wyoming’s plan. If approved, the state’s wolf “management” plan would legalize indiscriminate killing throughout 90% of the wolf’s Wyoming range outside of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

Killing of wolves in areas near these parks would be regulated, but wolves elsewhere in Wyoming could be shot on sight.

Help save Wyoming wolves. Send your message to state officials now.

Wolves play a crucial role in maintaining balanced ecosystems, helping to ensure that increasing elk and other game populations do not overwhelm available habitat. But wolves also play an increasingly important role in the region’s economy.

According to a recent study, the roughly 151,000 people who visit Yellowstone National Park each year to see wolves bring in $35 million to Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. And nearly four percent of Yellowstone National Park’s 2.8 million annual visitors say they would not have visited the nation’s oldest national park if wolves weren’t there. [1]

Urge Wyoming to drop its frivolous lawsuit and adopt a sensible wolf management plan that federal officials can approve. 

Wolf recovery in the Northern Rockies is one of the great conservation victories of the last century. It’s up to us to ensure that it lasts.

Sincerely,

Rodger Schlickeisen, President Signature
