Wolf Calls to Congress needed today via @Howling4Wolves
Dear wolf advocate A wolf delisting amendment will be voted on by the US House tomorrow or Friday.
The lifeline for the wolf will be cut if Congress gets their way.
Please muster your inner wolf and make phone calls to your own US
Representative in their D.C. offices. Even if you know that your
representative is against federal wolf protections, a phone call is
important so they cannot say “no one contacted us.”
The full U.S. House of Representatives is taking up the “Sportsmen's
Heritage & Recreational Enhancement Act” (SHARE Act), simply called
the Sportsmen’s act (HR 2406). Amendment #2 will delist the Great Lakes
and Wyoming wolves and make it not subject to judicial review. The
amendment language is the same and by the same congressmen as in the
December “rider” bill: Reps. Ribble, Lummis, Benishek and Peterson.
Our strong and relentless defense bolsters those lawmakers who support
federal wolf protection. We may also persuade more moderate
representatives. We must be the wolf’s voice. Right now we are in
defense mode, which is tough, but better than having wolves lose
protections. Be the wall!
Vote “no” on the #2 amendment to HR 2406 that delists the wolf of the Great Lakes and Wyoming
Vote “no” on HR 2406 the Sportsmen’s Act or Share.
Tell your representative that state agencies do not use smart or ethical
wolf policies. We witnessed this firsthand when they immediately
started wolf hunting and trapping seasons after wolf delisting in 2011.
Killing wolves is the only plan our state agencies have ever offered.
State agencies are not recovering wolves and that is why they still need
The wolf needs for you to speak out. We understand this relentless defense is tiresome, but think about what will happen without federal protections and then muster your inner wolf and make the call.
