Howling Mad Protest For Mexican Gray Wolves
Mexican gray wolf supporters, including our own Executive Director, Maggie Howell, and Youth Education Director, Regan Downey, gathered today in Santa Fe, New Mexico to protest roadblocks to saving endangered Mexican gray wolves enacted by Govornor Susana Martinez.
Under Gov. Martinez, the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish sued the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in May and obtained an injunction barring the federal agency from releasing wolves into the wild in the state. The federal government and conservation organizations have appealed that injunction, but while the appeal is being decided the Mexican wolf’s genetic plight is worsening.
Please join us in howling across the miles to support these voices for wolves as they raise awareness for lobos that remain at the brink of extinction.
