Tell FWS: Don’t Give Up on Red Wolf Recovery!

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission has asked the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to give up on red wolves and shut down the wolf’s recovery program in the wild and shockingly there are indications FWS may take the proposal seriously!

These critically endangered cousins of the gray wolf were nearly exterminated, until a reintroduction program was launched in 1987. Today, roughly 100 of these animals survive in a small patch of eastern North Carolina scrub forest.

Federal officials expect to make a decision by sometime in March!

So it’s critical that you act now and tell FWS to stand up for red wolves and continue recovery efforts – please act today!
