Help Bring a Wolf Killer to Justice

2017 is off to a rough start — a highly endangered red wolf has been found dead and we need to find the killer.

The body was discovered in North Carolina’s Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, where red wolves are protected under the Endangered Species Act. The Center for Biological Diversity is offering a $7,500 reward for information leading to a conviction or fine in this latest illegal killing. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has put out a $2,500 reward as well.

To offer this reward we need the support of our members like you. Please give to the Center’s Wolf Defense Fund so we can bring this killer to justice.

Although once abundant across much of the Southeast, red wolves were pushed to the brink of extinction following decades of relentless persecution. After the species was declared endangered, wolf releases began in North Carolina’s Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge, but recovery efforts have repeatedly been thwarted by illegal shootings. The science demonstrates that red wolves can be recovered if these illegal killings end.

No one fights harder to save wolves than the Center. We’re adding to this reward because red wolves are a critical part of America’s heritage, and we can’t let a few killers deny future generations their opportunity to see these animals in the wild. We can only do this because wolf lovers like you step forward by contributing to the Wolf Defense Fund.

There are only 45 red wolves left in the wild, so the deliberate killing of any individual wolf is a terrible blow to the conservation of this amazing species. This deplorable slaughter is a stark reminder of why we must act quickly to save this precious species before it disappears forever.

For the wolves,

China: Major game changer for the benefit of African elephants – China sees the light and announces an ivory trade and processing ban by end of 2017.



Major game changer for the benefit of African elephants – China sees the light and announces an ivory trade and processing ban by end of 2017.

China has announced a ban on all ivory trade and processing activities by the end of 2017.

Conservation groups hailed the decision as “historic” and a “game-changer” for the future of elephants.

The move follows a resolution at the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cites) in South Africa in October.

China has the biggest ivory market in the world – some estimates suggest 70% of the world’s trade ends up there.

China’s State Council announced the details of the ban on Friday.

The commercial processing and sale of ivory will stop by 31 March, and all registered traders will then be phased out, bringing a full halt to the market by the end of the year.

Conservation group WWF welcomed the latest news, calling it a “historic announcement… signalling an end to the world’s primary legal ivory market and a major boost to international efforts to tackle the elephant poaching crisis in Africa”.
