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
take action today, and tell FWS to allow scientists with the most expertise to
review the wolf delisting plan!
Follow NAS Guidance and OMB rules and allow scientists with the most expertise to review wolf delisting plan.
Dear Director Ashe,
Thank You, [Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
