Petition: Keep Gray Wolves Listed as an Endangered Species

Petition: Keep Gray Wolves Listed as an Endangered Species

  • 128

Before they were listed on the Endangered Species List in the 1970s, the northern was hunted to the brink of extinction in the U.S. After being recognized as endangered, conservation efforts helped these wolves grow their population and somewhat recover. However, the population is nowhere near stable and they still require a great deal of support.

There have been many attempts to delist these wolves as endangered so that could continue. Thus, the wolves have been on and off the list for years.

For example, in Michigan in 2012, people have tried to paint these wolves as large threats to children, which is untrue as wolves are typically timid around humans and will not attack.

This past July, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) put out a lethal removal order for any wolf in a specific pack due to their interactions with local livestock.

Not only are the wolves not to blame, but them is also an ineffective way of minimizing the interactions.

It’s obvious that wolves need Endangered Species protections, as are eager to start murdering these poor animals. If they lose their protected status, the population of Northern will likely plummet once again.

Sadly, at the end of August, the director of the US Fish and Wildlife Service said that plans to remove their ESA protections.

Animal activist groups are speaking out against the delisting of Gray Wolves, arguing that the species is still vulnerable.

Sign this petition now to demand that the U.S. federal government keep gray wolves listed as endangered species!

105828 SUPPORTERS-110 000 OBJECTIF Comme si l’année 2020 ne pouvait pas être pire, le magnifique loup gris – une icône de l’Amérique du Nord et une espèce en voie de disparition en plus – pourrait être sur le point de disparaître. Pourquoi? Tout est dû à la haine de Donald Trump pour la protection des animaux en danger. En septembre 2020, son secrétaire à l’Intérieur par intérim, David Bernhardt, a annoncé que l’administration prévoyait de révoquer le statut officiel d ‘«espèce menacée» des loups gris en les retirant de la liste fédérale des espèces menacées. Ce petit changement pourrait avoir… Read more »
