Help us Continue the Fight for Wolves!

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has just quietly barred 16 of the world’s most respected wolf experts from advising on the agency’s misguided proposal to delist most gray wolves in the lower 48 states.

And all these experts did was sign a letter to Secretary Jewell expressing concern that their own research was being distorted in order to justify the delisting of wolves.

Excluding scientists with expertise on the topic decreases the effectiveness of the review panel, and gives the unfortunate impression that the Service is attempting to stack the deck in order to receive a favorable review on a controversial proposal. 

Please take action today, and tell FWS to allow scientists with the most expertise to review the wolf delisting plan!
