Take Action To Protect Wolves

By Rachel Tilseth, the founder of Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin
on July 1, 2015
Take Action Now Wolves are under assault in the guise of an interior appropriations bill with a rider that calls for delisting wolves. There are also several anti wolf bills in congress to this date.
“The judicial branch exists to provide oversight and review of our nation’s laws, and the idea that this Republican appropriations bill would try to circumvent that constitutionally critical process is wrong,” McCollum said.

Wolves are not fully recovered in the lower USA. Wolves are Keystone Predators that are essential for the health of our ecosystems. Wolves are not a major threat to livestock or humans.
It’s up to all of us to take action to #KeepWolvesListed Now #ActionAlert
