August 5, 2017

Background:
Wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan and parts of North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio were delisted effective January 27, 2012. 

The USFWS argued that wolf populations were "significant" and that disease and humans did not pose a threat to the wolves.
Minnesota and Wisconsin each held three hunting/trapping seasons before protections were restored in December 2014.  Michigan held one hunting season (no trapping season).   

During those three years more than 1500 wolves were killed.

The 2014 federal district court ruling put the Western Great Lakes wolves back on the Endangered Species List, classifying wolves as "endangered" in Michigan and Wisconsin and "threatened" in Minnesota. 

On January 27, 2015, the Humane Society of the US, National Wolfwatcher Coalition and others petitioned the USFWS to classify Great Lakes wolves as a threatened species.  We considered this a reasonable compromise as it would have allowed states the authority to kill problem wolves but not the recreational hunting and trapping of wolves.  The petition was denied in April 2015.

Meanwhile, in February  2015, the states along with the US Sportsman's Alliance,  NRA, Michigan United Conservation Club,  Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Safarri Club, Hunting Dog Federation (and others), joined in appeals of the December 2014 decision.

On August 1, 2017, The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a unanimous decision affirmed the lower-court ruling.  The Court ruled that US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) regulators failed in their analysis of the Endangered Species Act stating they "failed to reasonably analyze or consider two significant aspects of the rule - the impacts of partial delisting and of historical range loss on the already-listed species."

This means wolves in the Great Lakes remain federally protected - for now - but they are still in the crosshairs.

Be an Advocate for Wolves
Lawmakers, hunting groups, federal and state agencies will not stop in their quest to have wolves hunted and trapped across the Great Lakes Region.   And, we as advocates can't let them win.  Now, is the time to step up and stop the war on wolves.
Everyone reading this message must contact their US Representative and US Senators and we ask that everyone have at least 10 friends and family members contact their Representative and Senators.  Share on your Facebook page; make it "go viral".   If you take a stand for wolves, we will make a difference.
You don't need to be a fancy writer.  The message is simple: Tell your representative to oppose S 1514 and every other bill that will weaken the Endangered Species Act or remove protections for wolves.   Species should not be delisted through Congressional action.  Congress should not take away our democratic right to challenge rules and regulations.  Congress should not enact laws to circumvent the courts.
Several bills are currently pending in Congress.  S 1514 has already passed through Committee and on its way to becoming law - unless we stop it.  S 1514 directs the Secretary of Interior to reissue the final rule published on December 28, 2011 (76 Fed. Reg. 81666), without regard to any other provision of statute or regulation that applies to issuance of such rule.  Such reissuance shall not be subject to judicial review.
Information about the bills along with how to contact your Representative and Senators can be found at our website by CLICKING HERE.  Be strong; Do it for the wolves; Just DO IT! 
Speak Up for Mexican Wolves
United States Fish and Wildlife Service has released a draft recovery plan for Mexican gray wolves. This plan is critical to the future of wild Mexican gray wolves, a unique subspecies of wolf on the verge of extinction.
