Further Update – 17/12/15:

Dear Mark,

Wolves in four states got a reprieve Tuesday night with news that a congressional rider that would have stripped federal protections from wolves was not included in the final budget.

This is huge — the move would have been a disaster, ending Endangered Species Act protection in Wyoming, Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin — pushing aside decades of work to recover wolves in these regions. The Center for Biological Diversity has been on the front lines in the fight against these anti-wildlife measures since the very beginning, and we never let up.

Thanks to all our supporters who made calls, sent letters and raised their voices for wolves. Along with you, we’ll savor this victory as the year comes to close, but know that the fight for wolves will continue in 2016.

The same vicious attitudes that drove the potential budget riders to end wolf protections will be back at the local, state and federal levels — and we’ll be there to fight back every hour and every day. We’ll need you by our side to ensure that wolves will not be stalked, shot down and trapped in this coming year.

Wolf hunts are still legal in Idaho and Montana — hundreds have died so far this winter.

Government agencies, like the rogue “Wildlife Services,” are still killing far too many wolves at the behest of special interests. And the wolf-haters in Congress will return, trying next year to again strip wolf protections.

This is a moment of celebration, but it’s also a moment to re-commit to the fight for wolf protection. Right now a passionate wildlife advocate has made just such a commitment — she will match every dollar if you donate now to the Endangered Species Defense Fund.

We’ll use your matched gift to take on new threats in 2016. With the wolf-haters pushing back from California to New Mexico to the shores of the Great Lakes, we won’t stop until every wolf is safe from needless suffering and death.

As this victory shows, with your help, we can win for wolves. For the wild,

Kierán Suckling

thanks wolves win


I have very good news to share with you today.

Late last night, Congress released the text of the omnibus budget bill and the anti-wildlife riders that would have legislatively delisted wolves have been removed.

Had the omnibus bill moved forward with those provisions intact, wolves in Wyoming, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin would have again been stripped of protections and these states would likely have set hunting and even trapping seasons. 

Your support and actions were instrumental in keeping these dangerous proposals from becoming law. Together, we delivered tens-of-thousands of emails, phone calls, tweets, and in-person visits to decision makers to impress upon them the crucial need to keep wolves protected under the Endangered Species Act.

Thank you for everything that you have done for wolves and other endangered and threatened species.

We will continue to update you if Congress takes up similar bills, and hope you will help us keep up the momentum to protect wolves.

Until then, we can celebrate this success for these wolves today.
