Help Stop Idaho's War on Wolves

From county sheriff departments to the governor's office, Idaho state officials seem bent on turning back the clock to a time when wolves were needlessly exterminated from much of the country.

It's been just one year since Congress stripped federal protections from wolves in the Northern Rockies. Already, more than 400 wolves have been killed in Idaho -- and state officials show every intention of killing off as many wolves as possible until they drive the population down to just 150 in the state.

It's as though Idaho has been transported back to the 1890s -- to a time where wolves were aggressively targeted for eradication. These extreme wolf-killing policies have no place in modern-day wildlife management.

Your donation will support our five-point plan to ensure a lasting future for wolves by:

  • Countering anti-wolf policies and rhetoric on the ground through media outreach, grassroots mobilization and public education;
  • Highlighting Idaho’s failure to live up to its original promise to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to manage wolf populations at numbers between 518-732 wolves and its current extreme plan to drive wolf populations down to a mere 150 wolves;
  • Holding the Obama administration to its commitment to ensure the states maintain recovered wolf populations;
  • Bringing science back to the process by urging studies of wolf populations and how they're affected by such extreme lethal management;
  • Expanding our pioneering on-the-ground coexistence work with ranchers to keep wolves out of harm's way.

Please donate now to support these and other efforts to protect the wildlife and wild places you care about.
