Damaging anti-wolf amendments (riders) that undermine Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections are still in play for House and Senate draft FY 2018 Interior/EPA appropriations bills. The anti-wolf provisions are among a handful of amendments that seek to weaken the ESA. One provision goes as far as seeking to strip protections for critically endangered Mexican gray wolves!

The House Interior, Environment and Related Agencies appropriations bill (H.R. 3354) contains the following anti-wolf provisions:

  • Wyoming/Midwest Wolf Delisting: Section 116 will override a federal court decision and remove existing ESA protections for gray wolves in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. A recent D.C. Circuit court of appeals decision, which stripped ESA protections for wolves in Wyoming make the Wyoming portion of this rider effectively moot. This rider would also preclude judicial review of this decision, thus undermining the rule of law and citizen court access.
  • Critically endangered Mexican Gray Wolf: Section 117 seeks to go so far as to defund recovery measures for gray wolves throughout the entire continental United States, even though wolves currently inhabit only 15% of their historic range. This same provision would also block all spending on recovery efforts for the Mexican gray wolves, even though there are just 113 remain in the wild in the United States and 35 in Mexico. 

The Senate Draft Bill contains the same anti-wolf provision as the House version:

    • Wyoming/Midwest Wolf Delisting: Will permanently remove federal ESA protections for gray wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Wyoming; and prohibits its judicial review thus preventing any legal challenge. Judicial review is an important part of the checks and balances to limit the authority of the legislative branch. Wolves are on the table today. What tomorrow? Our environment? Our public health? Our civil rights? Would your representatives support a bill that undermines one of the central pillars of American democracy?

Take Action

Please urge your representatives to keep these anti-wolf riders, which undermine the Endangered Species Act and its scientific process, out of the appropriation bill! 

This action is open to U.S. residents only.
