Support our work to save Idaho’s wolves

We can’t let the 1,000 surviving wolves in Idaho get gunned down from helicopters, snowmobiles, and ATVs.

Can you guess which of the following actions are legal in Idaho?

  • A: Gunning wolves down from helicopters
  • B: Collecting money for killing wolves
  • C: Capturing wolves in inhumane traps 
  • D: Chasing wolves on snowmobiles and ATVs

If you guessed all of the above, you’re right.

But in the Environmental Action pack, we know that shooting wolves from helicopters and ATVs is simply wrong. That’s why we’re working to protect the 1,000 surviving Idaho wolves from slaughter.

Idaho plans to kill hundreds of wolves

Last year, Idaho voted to kill 800 of its wolves. After a series of relentless hunting seasons like that, we thought that Idaho’s wolves might just catch a break this year.

But we thought wrong: Now, the state has set aside $1,000,000 to pay wolf-killing huntersThat even includes using tax dollars to reimburse ranchers who hire private hunting companies to kill wolves.

Without people like you standing up for them, the 1,000 wolves of Idaho are outmatched, outnumbered, and outgunned. 

Support our work to save the wolves

With just 1,000 vulnerable wolves left in Idaho, the state should do everything it can to protect its packs — but in Idaho, wolves are lured away from their packs, captured and killed, and turned into trophies. 

From hired hunts to helicopter chases, these wolves don’t deserve all that’s allowed to happen to them.

We won’t stand by and let this vulnerable population fall further toward eradication. Will you join us?
