Congressional Champions for Wolves Reach Out to Colleagues
Last week Rep. Michael Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and Rep. Raul M. Grijalva (D-AZ) sent a "Dear Colleague" letter to fellow House representatives asking them to sign on to their letter to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell. In the letter, the republican and democrat oppose the proposed rule to remove Endangered Species Act protection from gray wolves in the lower 48 states. They're appealing for members to join them in sending a strong message to Secretary Jewell that we must finish the job and fully restore wolves to the American landscape. The deadline for signing on is Monday, Oct. 21. Please encourage your representative to sign on too!
Please visit http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ to find your representative and their contact info.
Wolves nationwide urgently need our help so if you have yet to submit comments to U.S. Fish & Wildlife (USFWS), please #StandForWolves and take action today. USFWS is accepting comments re: the proposals until October 28th.
