July 28, 2014 Our Wolves at Risk

The White Mountain Conservation League encourages all to speak out for wolves.  This is a critical moment for them.

From Defenders of Wildlife

Doomed to a slow extinction if the U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s proposal is finalized, there’s a lot at stake for Mexican gray wolves.

Their last hope is for you, and people just like you, to stand between them and changes that could drive them toward extinction.

Please, RSVP to attend a public hearing before it’s too late for these amazing creatures.

Thank you and I hope to see you there!

Over the course of two days, Mexican gray wolves will have their fate decided.

On August 11th and 13th, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) will hold two crucial public hearings to determine the future of Mexican gray wolves in the Southwest.

 Monday, August 11th, 2014
2:00pm – 4:00pm – Informational session
6:00pm – 9:00pm – Public Hearing
Hon-Dah Conference Center
777 Highway 260
Pinetop, AZ 85935

There are fewer than 90 wild Mexican gray wolves in the entire world. Now, FWS is proposing to change the way the wolves are managed – changes that will determine whether the wolves recover and thrive, or die out and disappear.

These wolves are doomed to a slow extinction if this proposal is finalized. Their last hope is for you, and people just like you, to stand between them and changes that could drive them toward extinction.

Once you RSVP, look for another email from us about what to expect at a hearing, and talking points to use if you choose to testify. Remember, if you don’t wish to speak, you are helping the wolves just by showing up!

Together, we can make a difference and save these wild wolves.

Sincerely,

Eva Sargent
Southwest Program Director
