Help Save America's Wolves! Click on one of the items below to take action to save wolves in the Northern Rockies and areas near Yellowstone National Park, Alaska, the American Southwest and elsewhere.


America's wolves need our help!

America's wolves were nearly eradicated in the 20th century. Now, after a remarkable recovery in parts of the country, our wolves are once again in serious danger.

In Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies
On March 6th, 2009, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar approved the Bush Administration's discredited plan to eliminate Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in Idaho and Montana -- a decision that could lead to the deaths of more than 1,000 wolves! Take action now to save wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies...

In Alaska
More than 1,000 wolves in Alaska have been killed by aerial gunning since 2003, and state officials are pushing to kill even more wolves this year using aerial gunning, poison gas and snares. Take action now to save wolves in Alaska... 

In the Southwest
Misinformation and anti-wolf sentiment runs high, with the few remaining wolves in Arizona and New Mexico at risk of extinction. With only around 50 Mexican wolves -- and just two breeding pairs -- left in the wild, we need sensible, science-based wolf management to ensure the “lobo” will survive -- and thrive -- in the wilds of the Southwest. Take action to save wolves in the Southwest... 

Defenders of Wildlife continues the fight to promote common sense wolf management, working with federal and state officials and private land-owners to ensure that science -- not politics -- guides decision-making about the future of these wild American icons.

Save America's Wolves

Dear Friends,

Thank you for taking the time to send a message to President Obama. Together, we’re a powerful voice in the fight to protect Idaho’s wolves and other imperiled wildlife.

Make sure President Obama hears your message! Call the White House comment line at 202-456-1111 and deliver this simple message:

“My name is ___________ and I’m calling from ________ to urge President Obama to restore Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in Idaho and Montana.

Americans have worked too hard to rescue these wolves from the brink of extinction to allow officials in Idaho and Montana to eliminate more than two-thirds of the region's wolves through hunting and other methods.”

Please let us know you called, so we can better target our communications to the White House.

 Call the White House ! Please accept my gratitude for your efforts today. With your help, we can stop Idaho’s deadly wolf hunt, save the lives of wolves and ensure a brighter future for these magnificent animals.

Best Regards,

Rodger and the Defenders of Wildlife Team
