Thursday February 19, 2015 #TWEETSTORM Event- original tweet (this will be my Tweet):

@SenatorBaldwin @RepRonKind oppose anti-wolf Legislation HR843 / HR884 #KeepWolvesListed
Big money, big hunt clubs are on the move to pressure congress to delist wolves nationwide and they don’t want that subject to judicial review. And this will allow states to manage wolves with reckless trophy hunts that significantly put wolves at risk.

Let’s make it very clear to Washington D.C. We want to keep the dirty politics out of the Endangered Species Act. Our rare and endangered wildlife are not a bargaining chip for big money!

#KeepWolvesListed join the #TWEETSTORM @ your US senator and @ your US House of Representative
