Urgent action needed: Congress could put more wolves in the crosshairs

Both sides of Congress are voting this week on a must-pass spending bill — and some members are trying to use it as cover to push for more wolf hunting.

Rep. Boebert’s legislation would erase federal protections for the wolves that are already safe from hunting, and block any efforts to restore those protections for wolves in the Lower 48.

Put simply, that would mean hundreds of wolves dying every year — especially in the Upper Midwest.

Led by Rep. Lauren Boebert (Colo.), the House already added nationwide wolf hunting to one version of this legislation. We need to stop this effort in its tracks.

Tell your U.S. senators and U.S. House representative: Vote against any efforts to expand wolf hunting or erase Endangered Species Act protections for wolves.
