Outraged by the Congressional Wolf Deal? Tell Congress.

The O’Leary- It’s outrageous. The leadership in Congress has decided to include a provision eliminating vital life-saving protections for wolves in the Northern Rockies, Oregon and Washington… as part of a completely unrelated must-pass spending bill!Tell your representative and senators that your outraged by the inclusion of the wolf provision and urge them to remove this provision before the bill is approved. Take action now. Wolf Face in Woods (Copyright Larry Allen 2009) 

Save Wolves - Take Action 


Save America's Wolves

Outraged by the Congressional Wolf Deal? Tell Congress.

A must-pass federal spending bill being considered this week would eliminate protections for gray wolves in the Northern Rockies and Oregon and Washington.

Tell Congress to remove anti-wolf provisions in the spending bill to fund the government for the rest of the year.

Dear The O’Leary, 

I’m mad as hell. 

Despite all of our hard work in opposition to the elimination of federal protections for wolves – opposition that stopped the last, “lame duck” Congress from removing federal protections for wolves in the Northern Rockies – it is clear that congressional leadership now intends to include similar language in the current budget bill that funds the government to the end of September.   

This is shameful.  Not only do these provisions substitute politics for science in the protection of endangered species, but they also have NOTHING to do with the federal budget!

Tell Congress to leave our wolves alone. Send your message now.

The language being considered removes federal protections from wolves (“delists” wolves from the endangered species list) not only in Idaho and Montana… but also in states like Oregon and Washington where the wolf population is only now beginning to get a toehold. 

PLEASE immediately email or phone your two senators and member of the House of Representatives at (202)224-3121.  

Tell them that it is outrageous that the 2011 budget bill includes a provision that puts politics above science in the protection of endangered species, and demand that they eliminate the non-budget wolf provision from that bill. 

I can’t overemphasize how difficult this fight is. The fact that our opposition has buried this provision in a gigantic, “must-pass” bill funding the government makes it VERY hard to reach. But we have to try. Please help — it is essential that we make our voices heard. 

I care about the future of our wolves and I know you do too. Please take a moment right now and lend your voice to our fight to protect these magnificent animals.
