gray wolves

This Earth Day, will you help us protect America’s wolves?.       We’ve made a lot of progress on wolf conservation, but we’re not done yet. Wolves have seen a lot of progress since the last Earth Day. A Wisconsin judge blocked the state’s fall wolf hunt, and now we have the most lobos in the wild since the 1970s.1,2 Most importantly, Endangered Species Act […]
Environmental Action Impact: Gray Wolves

Did you know this about wolves? Wolves are featured in countless fairy tales — often as a frightening villain. For some, the “big bad wolf” is the only frame of reference they have for what wolves are like. But what are wolves really like? It’s time to put the myths aside and get the facts on gray wolves. Myth: Wolves are dangerous to […]

If we took a look inside a wolf pack, what would we see?     Wolf packs are cooperative families. Many expect to find a strict hierarchy — alpha wolves on top, omegas on the bottom. But the reality isn’t quite so straightforward. Packs aren’t gangs led by domineering alphas — in reality, they’re cooperative families.1 And the way these families form and operate can […]

2021 was a hard year for wolves. Last October, the Trump administration yanked Endangered Species Act (ESA) protection away from every wolf in the Lower 48 states.1 This year, we faced the consequences: More hunting than we’ve seen in decades.  But hope isn’t lost for our magnificent gray wolves, their elusive red wolf cousins, or the unique lobos of the Southwest. Here’s […]

One in every 5 Wisconsin gray wolves were killed in just 60 hours this February.1   This won’t be the last wolf hunt. It was the first wolf hunt that was a direct result of the Trump administration erasing Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections for gray wolves — but it won’t be the last. Wisconsin is already planning another hunt for this November — […]

The new administration can restore Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves.     Wolves need protection now more than ever. In a reckless decision by the Trump administration, gray wolves in the Lower 48 were stripped of their Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections. Now, the management of gray wolves is in states’ hands, and some are already making plans to start hunting and trapping […]
Wolf howling.

  By Julia DeVito, digital campaigner Only 5,500 wolves roam the lower 48 states. Their survival is now far from certain. On March 6, the Department of the Interior announced plans to take America’s gray wolves off the federal endangered species list. Along with their spot on the list, the wolves would also lose protections afforded by the Endangered Species Act (ESA). We […]

The House of Representatives has voted to eliminate Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in the lower 48 United States. Will you help save these iconic animals?      Wolves at Risk History shows: when wolves are unprotected, too many of them die. When Great Lakes wolves lost their federal protection in 2012, 1500 were killed before protection finally resumed. Right now, Wyoming […]

Together, we’re working hard to stand up for the wildlife and wild places that make our planet amazing.     Conservationist and author Edward Abbey once said, “Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit.” Over the past few months, many of our country’s wild places and wild creatures have been put at risk. Plastic is piling up in our […]
