Speak up for Oregon's wolves

Action: Wildlife Conservation

April 20, 2017   Action Alert ID# 498

 

As part of a standard five-year review, Oregon's wolf plan is currently being revised by the state Fish and Wildlife Commission and Department of Fish and Wildlife. Much remains the same in this draft's effort to conserve and manage these magnificent animals, but some of the proposed changes are deeply disturbing -- including, under some circumstances, allowing citizens to hunt wolves.

The department's recent annual wolf report also brings sobering news: In just one year's time since the state prematurely removed endangered species protections, the wolf population has plateaued -- with only 1.8 percent growth last year and a decrease in overall packs and breeding pairs. This is in stark contrast to prior years' 30 percent growth. The commission members need to hear from the public now to make sure no harmful changes are made to the plan and to secure strengthened wolf protections.

There are two things you can do to help:

1) Tell the commission you expect Oregon's wolf plan to protect wolves as much as possible and not weaken safeguards on behalf of the livestock and sport-hunting industries. And for maximum impact, please personalize your letter.

2) Join the Center's West Coast Wolf Organizer Amaroq Weiss at commission meetings on April 21 in Klamath Falls and on May 19 in Portland to testify for wolves. Massive turnout is essential. Never testified before? No worries. The Center and allies will hold free trainings in those cities the night before each hearing. Get more details and RSVP to join us for the important commission meetings and free workshops.
