USA: Urgent – Like Us, Please Donate To Save America’s Wolves.

wyoming wolf

Dear Mark, It all comes down to the next few days.

If far-right politicians get their way in Congress, many of our nation’s wolves will face constant pursuit, maiming and even violent deaths at the hands of hunters and trappers.

These politicians are sneaking wolf-killing “riders” into must-pass spending bills — and we need your help to stop them. With a vote expected to happen as soon as Friday, the Center is pushing hard to head off these poison pills, organizing our nearly 1 million members and supporters to speak out to Congress and tell them to drop this wolf-killing legislation.

We’re facing stiff opposition.

In Wyoming, if Rep. Cynthia Lummis succeeds, her rider would bring back shoot-on-sight rules that set no limits on wolf killing across much of the state. In the Great Lakes region, where 64 percent of Michigan citizens voted last year to end wolf hunting, the rider backed by newly-minted Speaker of the House Paul Ryan would ignore the people and jump-start organized hunts using neck snares and trained dogs that could decimate the wolf population.

This is not how democracy or wolf conservation should work. These kinds of fights take enormous resources, which is why a generous advocate has offered to match your contribution on behalf of wolves when you give before Dec. 31.

Please help by donating to the Endangered Species Defense Fund today.

We know from experience that when federal protections are yanked, wolves die and decades of recovery work come to a screeching halt. The Center and our allies won reprieves from these death sentences in many states, but if these riders pass, vicious wolf-killing campaigns will resume in Wyoming, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Oregon, Washington, Utah and Colorado could follow suit, eliminating safe havens for wolves one by one.

Please help us stop the killing by donating to the Endangered Species Defense Fund today.

The Center has made saving wolves a top priority for decades — leveraging science, law and activism to win a string of victories in court and Congress for their protection. Now we’re facing a whole new level of animosity as lawmakers commit themselves to ending wolf protection.

With your support, we’ll organize our lawyers, scientists and activists in Washington and across the country to oppose this deadly agenda. With the Center you can secure a future for America’s wolves and other wildlife on the brink of extinction, ensuring their protection, securing safeguards for their habitat and fighting off attacks by those looking to weaken the Endangered Species Act.

The enemies of wolves want to see them wiped out across most of the country for the second time in a century. The endgame is on.

Please donate as generously as you can to the Endangered Species Defense Fund. For the wild,

Kierán Suckling

Executive Director Center for Biological Diversity @KieranSuckling

Dear Mark,

Thank you for your generous contribution to the Center for Biological Diversity’s “Endangered Species Defense Fund”. Your tax-deductible gift will help our fight to defend the rare and valuable wild plants, animals and places we all love, as well as uphold the Endangered Species Act.

Your gift will be matched by another generous donor who shares your concern for protecting Earth’s precious biodiversity, making your gift especially powerful. For more than 25 years, the Center has tackled some of the most difficult and challenging environmental problems facing our planet and the future of life on earth – attacks on our bedrock environmental laws, climate change, population and sustainability issues, habitat loss for species, and pollution of the air, land and water that all life on Earth needs to survive.

Thanks to the loyal and generous help of our members, we’ve been able to safeguard nearly 600 imperiled species and close to a half a billion acres of wild habitat. Your help gives us the power to make a difference for the future of the planet by taking action in the courts, on the ground and in local communities.

Together with your support, we move forward with a wild and powerful love for the beauty, diversity and mystery of life on this planet.

Sincerely,

Kieran Suckling, Executive Director.
