Success! Wolves Near Yellowstone are Safer!

Success!  Wolves Near Yellowstone are Safer!

Care2 members spoke, and the state of Montana listened.

Earlier in December, the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission took a positive step forward in the state’s management of wolves by closing one unit adjacent to Yellowstone National Park to hunting and trapping for the rest of this season.

This decision came after a meeting with the Greater Yellowstone Coalition (GYC), where GYC presented signatures from 30,000 Care2 members demanding protection for wolves.

This adjustment in Montana’s hunting and trapping season will limit mortality of wolves that move north across Yellowstone National Park’s boundary. Hopefully this plan will be used as a blueprint for wolf management in other areas.

With support from Care2 members, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition will continue to monitor wolf populations in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. They will ensure wolves have a sustainable future in Greater Yellowstone.

Your voice is a necessary player in wolf advocacy. For more information on how you can continue to make a difference for wolves, please read about this conservation icon and sign our petition to Protect Yellowstone Wolves.
