Special interest groups are pushing for legislation that will remove federal protections, and put wolves up for hunting again, rather than follow current laws that help them survive. Without federal protection, states, like Minnesota, have implemented recreational wolf hunting and trapping seasons, that led to the killing and destruction of the wolf species. Please contact your U.S. Senators and Representatives even if you live in a state outside of the wolf habitats; your elected officials will vote on the bills that may be harmful to wolves everywhere, and they should know that protecting wolves is important to you.
It is very important that you take action, contact federal officials and tell them you want wolves protected. The first action is for Minnesota residents contacting their local elected officials. The first action is for both the U.S. and Minnesota residents contacting their U.S. Senators and Representatives. If you reside in a different country, it is very important that you select the second action and sign a petition asking Minnesota Governor to protect wolves.
Over 80,000 individuals have signed our petitions with over 45,000 of those signers being Minnesotans. It is very important to add your voice.
Federal action - all US residents including Minnesotans: Tell your U.S. Senators and Representatives that wolves need federal protection
Other countries residents: Ask Minnesota Governor and Department of Natural Resources to protect wolves
