National WolfWatcher Coalition Giving You a Last Chance to Speak Up for WY Wolves
As we began 2011, wolves of the Northern Rockies were listed as endangered. Just a few months later everything changed for this special population of predators. During the spring, Congress passed a 2011 budget rider (Sec. 1713) that removed Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections from wolves in Idaho, Montana, eastern Washington, eastern Oregon and northern Utah. Congress excluded Wyoming from the rider stating that it’s wolf management plan wasn’t viable.
Aunque US Fish and Wildlife (USFWS) criticó el plan del lobo de Wyoming en el pasado, este verano la agencia federal anunció su plan para aceptar la propuesta de Wyoming y ahora los defensores de la vida silvestre temen que se produzcan consecuencias desastrosas.
U.S. Rep. Lummis (WY) inserted a wolf delisting rider (Sec.113) in the proposed 2012 budget bill which seeks to permanently delist wolves in WY and the Western Great Lakes without judicial review. The House vote takes place on Dec. 16th so there is not much time left to take action on behalf of Wyoming’s wolves.
