We need your help to get the attention of Ricky Gervais to have him appear in a Public Service Announcement on Wisconsin wolves!
Please consider supporting our cause for #GivingTuesday. Your support helps make our work possible.
In response to today's release by Secretary Ryan Zinke's Department of Interior regarding draft regulations to weaken protections for America's most at-risk fish, plants and wildlife, Friends of the Wisconsin Wolf & Wildlife has put out a statement opposing this outrageous move.
The US Fish & Wildlife Service is once again taking steps to remove the gray wolf from the endangered species list. The move comes after a federal appeals court retained federal protections for the species last year.
This is a HUGE victory meaning that wolves in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin will not face hunting and trapping seasons in the near future!
Please contact Paul Ryan immediately and ask him to oppose ANY and ALL anti-wildlife riders in appropriations legislation: 855-742-9576
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.
It is do or die time for Great Lakes wolves and the legal framework that protects them as we know it. Congress is considering multiple bills and amendments to legislation "riders" that would have devastating effects on wolves and the future of the Endangered Species Act itself. WE MUST ACT NOW...
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!
This proposed bill would prohibit conservation wardens and federal law enforcement officers from enforcing wolf conservation laws, prevent funds to be used for wolf depredations, and stop all wolf population monitoring in Wisconsin. Please join us in opposition at the hearing on Wednesday, January 10th.
