Hunters in Wisconsin killed 216 wolves in just the first three days of the state’s wolf hunt.1   Almost 1 in 5 Wisconsin wolves were killed. 216 wolves amounts to about 18 percent of the state’s total estimated population of gray wolves lost to needless slaughter in less than a week. And the hunt is scheduled to happen again in just a few […]

At least two dozen wolves have already been shot for trophies on Yellowstone’s doorstep this winter. Across the rest of Wyoming, dozens more are being killed with no quota to put limits on the slaughter.1     This brutal hunt needs to stop. This brutal hunt needs to stop. We know that wolves are treasures, not trophies — and that if we don’t protect […]

Nearly every wolf in the lower 48 states has been stripped of critical Endangered Species Act protections — and this Giving Tuesday, we’re working hard to save them.     It’s time to take a stand to protect gray wolves. The Trump administration recently removed an estimated 6,000 gray wolves from the list of species protected under the Endangered Species Act.1 States are now […]
Environmental Action Impact: Gray Wolves

Gray wolves were nearly hunted to extinction in the 1930s — and they’re still in the crosshairs today.1   Wolves need our protection now more than ever. In Washington, the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife is notorious for “lethally removing” wolves from their packs — but shooting wolves to death is an inhumane method of wildlife control.2 Now that the Trump administration […]

It’s happening again: Washington state has officially authorized the killing of two more of its endangered wolves.1     The Togo wolf pack needs our help. Washington state won’t leave the Togo wolf family alone. In 2019, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) tried to eliminate the Togo pack completely by shooting the last two remaining wolves.2 Wolves deserve the chance to recover […]

The clock is ticking toward the end of our fiscal year — and so is the clock for gray wolves. Right now, the Trump administration is deciding whether wolves will keep the protection of the Endangered Species Act (ESA), or become vulnerable to legal hunting and trapping nationwide.   Help fuel our work in the year to come. With your support, we’ve stood […]

There’s not a moment to lose — the Trump administration could announce its decision to officially end Endangered Species Act (ESA) protection for wolves at any minute.     Wolves were almost hunted to extinction once before. In the early 1900s, almost every single gray wolf in America was shot to death. The protection of the ESA has helped these amazing animals slowly begin […]

Idaho lawmakers want to make parts of the state into permanent “wolf-free zones” where an unlimited number of wolves can be killed — even when mothers are in dens with their pups.1     Wolves could be hunted to extinction. Hunting once killed nearly every single wolf in the lower 48 states. If states like Idaho turn into wolf killing free-for-alls, we face the […]

It’s been a hard year for gray wolves — and the coming year will be even more pivotal to their survival.     Wolves have a big year ahead. This past spring, the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced its intent to remove wolves from the list of species protected by the Endangered Species Act (ESA).1 Throughout the summer, we rallied nature lovers across […]
Protect Gray Wolves

It’s hunting season in Wyoming, and wolves are dying by the dozen.     Wyoming’s wolf hunt is deadly. Twenty-six wolves have already been shot dead on Yellowstone’s doorstep during this year’s hunting season, and it’s not over yet.1 In 2017, Wyoming set a goal of slashing its wolf population in half — bringing it down to just 160.2 Every subsequent hunting season brings […]
