This Earth Day, we will not be silent as the lives of America’s wolves are threatened.    Just imagine what would happen if we were silent… How many more wolves would die, as their protections fell, from the Northern Rockies to the American Southwest, from the Carolina woods to the Great Lake forests? Would it be hundreds? Thousands? Over time, would any survive? We will […]

U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert’s bill to strip protections from gray wolves just got its first hearing.1 We have to stop it now.    Wolves all across the country are in danger. We remember all too well the last time the federal government weakened protections for the gray wolf. Where protections were lowered, hundreds of wolves were slaughtered. The Boebert bill would allow hunters and […]

It’s official: Wolves are coming back to Colorado.    Wolves deserve a safe return to Colorado. Coloradans voted in favor of reintroducing wolves to the Rocky Mountain State, and the reintroduction program is slated to begin later this year.1 But reintroducing wolves to Colorado doesn’t make any sense if it might be legal to hunt and trap them. Right now, the Fish and Wildlife […]

A critically endangered Mexican gray wolf named Asha was on a journey that could have transformed the future of her species — but wildlife officials stopped her in her tracks.1,2    A historic journey cut short. Asha was born in a patch of the American Southwest that the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) calls the lobo “recovery area,” but when she grew up, […]

Wolves are being killed by the federal government — and the hunts are being paid for with your tax dollars.     Our federal government should protect wolves, not kill them. In 2021, an agency called Wildlife Services in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) killed more than 300 wolves.1 Our federal government should protect our vulnerable wolves, not drive them even closer to […]

Last winter, more than two dozen of Yellowstone’s incredible wolves were slaughtered.     This Giving Tuesday, wolves need our help. They were safe in the national park — but not in the surrounding states, where lawmakers have radically expanded hunting and trapping of wolves. These wolves had no way of knowing they were crossing the invisible, man-made park boundary as they were lured across […]

We’re heartbroken: Washington state officials shot and killed an endangered wolf this September.1     Washington’s wolves are in danger. From a helicopter, they aimed their guns at a gray wolf pup and fired. This deadly incident is another example of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife prioritizing cattle over the endangered species they’re sworn to safeguard. Governor Jay Inslee should direct his agencies to […]

Wild red wolves are living on a knife’s edge between survival and extinction. As few as 15 of these incredible animals now roam their ancestral habitat in the forests of North Carolina.1       We have a chance to speak up for red wolves right now. With so few remaining, the wolves are in serious danger of being picked off one by one until […]

Fewer than 200 lobos are left in the wilderness of the American Southwest — so we can’t miss this chance to protect them.1       Now is our chance to win strong protection for Mexican gray wolves. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is in the process of revising its management plan for the Mexican gray wolf right now, and the agency is […]
