Idaho’s wolf haters think they can get away with anything. Time to prove them wrong.

Last month, Idaho’s Governor Otter signed a bill creating a $400,000-per-year wolf extermination fund.

Well Governor Otter, we’ll see your $400,000 and raise you!

Help us raise $401,000 to protect Idaho’s wolves – and fight for endangered wildlife wherever it is threatened.

From now until May 9, 2014, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $200,500. 

That means with the match, we can raise $401,000 for Idaho’s wolves!

As a donor to this unprecedented wolf defense effort, you will be supporting our three-part strategy to stop the out of control wolf killings in Idaho.

First, we have formally asked the U.S. Department of the Interior to reassess the status of wolves in the Northern Rockies under the Endangered Species Act in light of Idaho’s war on wolves. This is the first step towards regaining federal protection for these wolves, and we will continue to press for it. 

Second, we are reaching out to the people of Idaho to ask them to demand that their state officials stop knuckling under to forces of hatred. We know that Idahoans across the state do not support Governor Otter’s war on wolves.

Third, our legal team is actively reviewing our litigation options, while our policy experts and scientists are working hard to fight the rampant misinformation on this issue.

Nearly 1,300 wolves have been killed in Idaho since Congress stripped them of ESA protection in 2011. Entire packs have been shot from helicopters, and wolves have been trapped in snares and left to die.

This is exactly what we said would happen. And it has to stop.

Help us raise $401,000 to send the Governor a message – and to support our all-out campaign to defend Idaho’s wolves.

Don’t forget: Until May 9, members of our board of directors will match your gift dollar-for-dollar up to $200,500.

Nearly 20 years ago, Defenders helped release the first four wolves back into Idaho – and we’ve never left their side.

Defenders is the only national organization with staff on the ground in Idaho who not only worked to help restore wolves, but are actively working at the statehouse and state wildlife commission to testify against actions threatening wolves.

Please make an urgent donation today – and have your gift doubled!

After being hunted to the brink of extinction, wolves were reintroduced to the Lower 48 only two decades ago. After all these years, we cannot go back to the days of reckless and irresponsible slaughter.

Please help us.

Sincerely,

Jamie Rappaport Clark
President
Defenders of Wildlife
