August 14th is the National Day of Action for wolves! Today the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) and coalition partners launch a multi-month campaign of events and activities that highlight the importance of wolves to ecosystems and teach people of all ages easy ways they can participate as effective voices for wolves now and in the future. There are many ways people can join the movement to support wolf recovery and voice their opposition to USFWS's nationwide gray wolf delisting proposal.
Wolves in the Northeast, California, Pacific Northwest, Southern Rocky Mountains, and elsewhere would be left to be managed by state game agencies. These states would be free to allow hunting, trapping, even gassing of wolves within their borders. Still-recovering wolf populations could be decimated for sport and their would be no recourse under Secretary Jewell’s proposal.
