Rally and Testify at a Public Hearing to Save the Lobo from Extinction
Fifteen years after they were reintroduced, only about 75 Mexican gray wolves remain in the wild.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service is now proposing to delist gray wolves and implement changes that threaten the continued existence of Mexican wolves. Only one hearing will be held on both of these destructive proposals - October 4 in Albuquerque, NM.
Because this is so important, science and conservation groups throughout the four corners states and beyond are organizing a Save the Lobo event on the day of the hearing.
You and other supporters of the Mexican wolf are all that will stand between extinction and survival for these critically endangered, beautiful and intelligent animals. Please stand up and speak up for the lobo on October 4.
