Action Alert calling for more releases of Lobo Families into the Wild

Take Action for Mexican Wolves - Spring 2019

LoboWeek 2019 badgeThis #LoboWeek, join us in celebrating the Mexican gray wolf (aka Lobo) and their resilient nature in the face of adversity and their struggle for survival. This struggle has brought to light their incredible spirit and persistence.

Mexican gray wolves have made a return to the wild after near extinction. Now they face a growing threat to their survival: an alarming deterioration in the genetic health of the wild population.

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is responsible for wolf recovery, but they have not released new wolf families for many years. Saving Mexican wolves from inbreeding and extinction requires the releases of well-bonded wolf pairs with their pups.

It’s time to bring the balance back.

Lobos need action from elected officials to revitalize Mexican wolf recovery in Arizona. Our Senators need to call on USFWS to release well-bonded wolf families. Please contact them to respectfully ask for their support of wolf recovery in Arizona.

If you are an Arizona resident, please call
Senator Kyrsten Sinema: 202-224-4521
Senator Martha McSally: 202-224-2235

If you live outside Arizona, please take a moment to tell the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service that you want to see more well-bonded Mexican wolf families released into the wild.

Take Action for America's Gray Wolves - Deadline May 14, 2019!

On March 15, 2019 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) officially proposed removing federal Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves across the entire lower 48 states, a plan that would put the future of the gray wolf and its proven benefits to ecosystems at serious risk.

The proposed rule removes federal Endangered Species Act protections for all gray wolves in the contiguous United States except for the population of critically endangered Mexican gray wolves in Arizona and New Mexico, where only about 114 remain. This rule would threaten and remove protections for gray wolves, like Echo, a female gray wolf who dispersed to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in 2014 and any other dispersing wolves to suitable habitat in places like Utah and Colorado.
