The constant political attacks on wildlife and their homes may make you feel under siege. We know just how that feels. With your help, we’ve played great defense, beating back dozens of attacks. Now it is time to hop off this merry-go-round and make our voices heard at the ballot box. That is why we are launching our VOTE WILD campaign for the upcoming midterm elections and are reaching out to you, our activists, to join the movement!
The most important thing that we can all do is be informed voters in November and vote.
For our Vote Wild campaign, we are asking all of you to make sure to get out there and VOTE this fall. These midterm elections will be crucial for the Endangered Species Act, among other bedrock wildlife policy and laws, including protecting the gray wolf. Locally, the stakes are even higher. Tim Michaels, the candidate who is running against Governor Tony Evers, has been endorsed by the Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association and has already promised to reduce the wolf population below recovery levels. You can read his policy here.
Despite the importance of our elected decision-makers, a recent study shows that “environmentalists” are not committed voters. Endangered species need you to be ready to vote and to bring as many of your neighbors with you as you can.
Elections have enormous consequences and endangered species need you to show up ready and informed. After you have checked to make sure that your voter registration is correct and you are ready for election day, learn more about how important your vote is for our wolves and wildlife by reviewing our Vote Wild 2022 Fireside Chat with special guest speaker Corry Westbrook:
