Protect Wolves in California

Protect Wolves in California

The arrival of California's first confirmed wild wolf in nearly 90 years poses an incredible opportunity to recover a native species. But wolves returning to this state face threats to their survival.
Elected officials in counties where OR-7 was traveling have said they think wolves should be shot on sight; and they have asked the state wildlife agency to oppose legal protections for wolves.
Members of the public have also made threats against wolves in response to online news articles, including threats to shoot, shovel and shut up. But with legal protection under the California Endangered Species Act, wolves can and will return to California.

Please help us ensure that these beautiful animals are legally protected in the Golden State by
sending an email to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to ensure crucial information about wolves is included in its final report and to urge it to list gray wolves under the California Endangered Species Act.
