New Website for Michigan Wolves Protection

With just 700 wolves in Michigan and more than 50 years spent to recover them, we need to Keep Michigan Wolves Protected. 
 

About the Issue

The Michigan legislature just passed a law to allow a wolf hunt for sport in Michigan for the first time in nearly 50 years. There are fewer than 700 wolves in Michigan and their numbers are only now starting to recover. It’s not right to spend decades bringing the wolf back from the brink of extinction only to turn around and allow them to be killed for sport.
Keep Michigan Wolves Protected is seeking to collect more than 225,000 signatures of Michigan voters to place a referendum on the ballot. If we are successful, a proposal will appear on the Michigan statewide ballot in 2014 that would allow voters to choose whether or not to enact the legislature’s wolf hunting law.
