Wolves in the Northern Rockies are once more in danger of losing the protection of the Endangered Species Act. After delisting the wolves and then being forced to relist them earlier this year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is trying to delist them once again, in what looks like a last ditch effort by a lame duck administration.
You can help stop the roundly criticized plan, which could lead to the deaths of hundreds of wolves. Defenders of Wildlife has an online petition protesting the delisting proposal here. You can also register a comment at www.regulations.gov - just search for “wolves delist.” The period for public comment end on November 28.
