Helps protect the wolves in Asturias

Helps protect the wolves in Asturias. It is conducting a special campaign in defense of biodiversity in Asturias.
This is a petition to protect the wolves, because right now are in danger. Not many left, but could be exterminated if not prevent certain actions.

It is estimated that only between 150 and 200 wolves throughout the Principality of Asturias and the Picos de Europa being the only National Park in Spain where this species is still.
Last year, 59 attacks occurred in livestock animals throughout Asturias, having a total of 300,000 head, which is a truly insignificant figure.

However, farmers are pressing the government to allow Asturian wolf hunting, even in times of breeding. This would be very dangerous for the survival of these animals, which are part of the natural heritage of Asturias.

That's why this action stands in defense of wolves in Asturias. This is a request to not allow hunting of wolves in the Picos de Europa. It will be delivered to the Minister of Development Planning and the Environment, Belén Fernández González, where you can participate here .
