Due to USFWSâEUR(TM)s failure to release enough new wolves from the captive breeding population, the genetic diversity of the wild population remains low, in spite of the increase in numbers.

Please tell USFWS to release more Mexican wolves into the wild where they belong, and ask others to do the same.

Personalize the talking points/sample email below and send a message to the USFWS, urging them to release more wolves from the captive population.


Dear Dr. Lueders,

The wild population of Mexican wolves is at tremendous risk due to its small size and genetics. The recent cross fosters are good steps towards improving the wild population’s genetic health, but are not nearly enough. Many more wolves should be released this year from the hundreds in captive breeding programs and cross fostering should not be the only type of release undertaken.

For over 3 decades, captive breeding programs in the U.S. and Mexico have worked to maximize genetic diversity so that captive wolves could be released to increase the wild population’s genetic health. But USFWS has squandered the work of these programs by releasing very few of these wolves. The twelve cross fosters in the agency’s plan for 2018 are overly optimistic and wholly inadequate to recover the lobo.

Please stop letting wild wolves languish in captivity while the wild population’s genetic health suffers. Release significant numbers of new wolves into the wild where they belong.

Sincerely,
[Name, Address]
