wolves

It’s a dangerous time to be a wolf.       Wolves need our help right now. Almost anywhere in Wyoming, any wolf can be shot on sight for any reason — no permits needed, no questions asked.1 In Idaho, a new law has legalized a wolf slaughtering spree that could leave as few as 1 in 10 of the state’s wolves alive.2 Meanwhile, on […]

The government slaughter of wolves is heartbreaking and unacceptable.       U.S. government agents killed eight wolf pups in an Idaho national forest. Wolf pups are born defenseless: blind, deaf, and small enough to be held in one hand.1 When Wildlife Services — a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) — decided to kill eight wolf pups in an Idaho national forest, […]

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 […]

Twice as many wolves slaughtered. That’s the goal the state of Wisconsin has set for a wolf hunt that starts in just a few short weeks.1   wolf    Wolves need the protection of the Endangered Species Act. We urgently need to restore federal Endangered Species Act protections if we’re going to save wolves across the Lower 48 from a brutal hunting season. You can take […]

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 […]

With just one day left in 2020, we’re pulling out all the stops to make sure we can save wolves in the year to come.     Wolves need our help. Wolves are amazing animals — and they’ll need all the help we can give if they’re going to survive. We’re trying to raise $25,000 by midnight so we can start the new year strong […]

It’s happening again: Washington state has officially authorized the killing of two more of its endangered wolves.1     The Togo wolf pack needs our help. Washington state won’t leave the Togo wolf family alone. In 2019, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) tried to eliminate the Togo pack completely by shooting the last two remaining wolves.2 Wolves deserve the chance to recover […]

The clock is ticking toward the end of our fiscal year — and so is the clock for gray wolves. Right now, the Trump administration is deciding whether wolves will keep the protection of the Endangered Species Act (ESA), or become vulnerable to legal hunting and trapping nationwide.   Help fuel our work in the year to come. With your support, we’ve stood […]

There’s not a moment to lose — the Trump administration could announce its decision to officially end Endangered Species Act (ESA) protection for wolves at any minute.     Wolves were almost hunted to extinction once before. In the early 1900s, almost every single gray wolf in America was shot to death. The protection of the ESA has helped these amazing animals slowly begin […]
