Imagine Wisconsin losing a potential 168,000 jobs and $17.9 billion in consumer spending. If the policy “rider” that aims to de-list Great Lakes wolves is included in Congress’s budget bill, Wisconsin could see a severe drop in these numbers. Wolves are vital to our economy in both direct and indirect ways.
Join us in solidarity with Michigan and Minnesota to meet with your state lawmakers and discuss how wolves are an essential balance to our ecosystem. All attendees will receive a FREE original art Wildlife Day t-shirt!
Nowhere in the Public Hearing was there mention of the critically important role the wolf plays in keeping our deer herd healthy.
Many sport hunters proudly post pictures of themselves with their “harvest” and this year’s deer gun season was no exception. Some defend that these actions pay for conservation -- a strange kind of argument with many flaws.
Congress should not enact laws to circumvent the courts, ignore science or take away our right to challenge decisions.
