War On Wolves Looms: Help Rally To Wolf's Defense

WASHINGTON (RPRN) 02/23/09 — -President Bush may have left office but his wolf-killing policies are more threatening than ever. Your donation is urgently needed to overturn them once and for all. Right now, the Obama Administration is reviewing one of the Bush Administration's most dangerous midnight rules: if put into effect, it will rip away life-saving federal protection for wolves in the Northern Rockies.


Unless this deadly rule is reversed, hundreds of wolves in Greater Yellowstone and central Idaho could be gunned down by hunters and federal agents in the months to come.

The NRDC Action Fund is ramping up a nationwide campaign aimed squarely at persuading the Obama Administration to reject the Bush "war on wolves" and to call off the guns.

We're counting on your financial support to help us reach out to millions of concerned Americans and raise a powerful, pro-wolf outcry that Interior Secretary Ken Salazar will be unable to ignore.

Time is short and the stakes are very high.

Idaho and Montana are ready to unleash public hunts as soon as wolves are stripped of their Endangered Species protection. Mass killing would be a disaster for the wolf population in the Northern Rockies, which has not yet recovered to healthy levels.

The American people have strongly supported the reintroduction of wolves to the Northern Rockies -- and it stands as one of the greatest success stories of the Endangered Species Act.

But powerful hunting and ranching interests are arrayed against wolves. They are determined to decimate as much of the region's wolf population as possible.

It is critically important that the Obama Administration hear immediately from the vast majority of Americans who believe that wolves should be protected, not massacred.

With your support, we’ll make sure those voices get heard.

Please make your emergency donation right now. Help us end Bush's "war on wolves" once and for all.

Sincerely,
Frances
Frances Beinecke
President
NRDC Action Fund
