Protecting Wolves

One of those most important things that people can do to work towards a world of peace is to recognize the importance of all life to our existence and work to preserve and defend it in non-violent, non-confrontational ways..

I believe we should all do our part in protecting our world from harm, which includes all living and non-living things. Humans must find ways to live on this earth with all of life's properties and species, which of course includes wolves. It's man who must curtail their activities in such a way as to preserve earth’s property and life. After all humans are the only species on earth with the capacity, the technical know-how to achieve these protections.

In March, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar approved the Bush Administration's discredited plan to eliminate Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in Idaho and Montana – a decision that could lead to the deaths of more than 1,000 wolves!

Last year, when the Bush/Cheney Administration briefly eliminated federal Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in the Northern Rockies, more than 100 of the region's estimated 1,600 wolves were killed in just a couple of short months.

This time, even more wolves – as many of two-thirds of the region's wolf population – could be killed. That is why we need your help.

Urge President Obama to stop this flawed plan before it goes into effect on May 4th – and maintain Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in Idaho and Montana.
