Speak Up for a Future With Wolves

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is conducting its first comprehensive look, since 1978, at wolf taxonomy and conservation status throughout the United States, and it's asking for public comments on how to go forward.

The Fish and Wildlife Service proposes removing gray wolves throughout the upper Midwest and in the eastern United States from the federal endangered species list. The agency is also considering designating and protecting a distinct population of wolves in the Pacific Northwest that includes western Washington and Oregon, Northern California and the Sierra Nevada.

Please speak up to voice your support for maintaining current protections and for developing a national wolf recovery plan to ensure that life-affirming wolf howls will be heard from the Olympic Peninsula of Washington to the San Juan Mountains of Colorado to the Maine woods -- and in many wild nooks and crannies elsewhere as well.

Visit to take action now.
