Dear California Wolf Center Supporter,

This is a reminder that the proposed delisting hearings are fast approaching, and we need your help to speak up for wolves!

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is holding public hearings on the proposal to delist nearly all gray wolves across the country and on planned changes that could threaten the future of Mexican gray wolves.

Wolves need supporters like you to come in person to show your support for continued federal protections for wolves and to make sure Mexican gray wolves have the best chance at recovery. FWS has only scheduled three hearings across the country, so every voice counts!

Sacramento Hearing
California residents, this is your chance to make a difference for wolves! Wolf recovery in California has only barely begun, and federal protections are critical to ensure a future for wolves in our state. Your presence at this hearing on October 2 will help make that happen.
The California Wolf Center is co-sponsoring a pre-hearing meet-up organized by our friends at Defenders of Wildlife, who will be training wolf supporters to testify on behalf of wolves (click herefor helpful talking points). There will short talks by inspirational leaders, refreshments, and fun activities. Even if you do not wish to testify, your presence will make a huge difference in showing support for wolves. 
Will you join us in Sacramento on October 2nd to make a difference for wolves?
What:              3:30 pm - 4 pm: Pre-hearing meet-up (Comstock Ball Room)
      4 pm - 4:45 pm: Updates on the proposal and training on  how to testify (Comstock Ball Room)
