A Victory for Wolves and the Endangered Species Act!
Atka celebrates with a victory dance!
VICTORY! Less than an hour ago the U.S. Senate shut down HR 1! This budget bill, a Continuing Resolution, had numerous riders attached to it, including Section 1713 which would have removed wolves from the protections of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and would have also banned the issue from any future judicial review.
Thank you to all the people who contacted their Senators!!! The battle over wolves on Capitol Hill continues, but today is a VICTORY day for wolves. Please try to follow up and thank the Senators you contacted for today's outcome :)
Located in South Salem, NY, the Wolf Conservation Center (www.nywolf.org) exists to educate people about wolves and their valuable role in the environment, and to help protect their future in the wild. The WCC is home to ambassador wolves that visitors can observe in spacious natural enclosures. We also have over 20 wolves as part of our participation in Species Survival Plans for critically endangered Mexican Gray Wolves and Red Wolves.
