Target: Daniel Ashe, Director of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Goal: Save endangered red wolves from extinction by supporting the continuation of a recovery program under consideration for cancellation
A program that aims to protect and restore the population of endangered red wolves in the United States is currently in danger of being cancelled by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). It is the responsibility of USFWS officials to ensure these beautiful creatures do not come any closer to extinction than they already are.
While USFWS officials have not officially announced any plans to cancel this vital program, they have confirmed it is under consideration and thus in danger of being cancelled. There are currently less than 120 endangered red wolves left in the United States, making the continuation of the Red Wolf Recovery Program extremely important. The goal of the program is to restore healthy, viable populations of red wolves in the wild throughout the United States, and without these efforts, their extinction is imminent.
Animal experts from the Endangered Species Coalition state wolves are “critical members” of the American ecosystem, and their presence in the wild offers benefits to numerous other species as well. These beautiful creatures are at risk of extinction due to cruel efforts by humans to wipe them out in the United States decades ago, and the responsibility to correct the mistakes of the past falls on the USFWS. Urge officials to ensure the vital Red Wolf Recovery Program continues to protect and restore red wolves in the United States.
Dear Mr. Ashe,
I am writing to you in support of the vital Red Wolf Recovery Program, which is currently under consideration by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
As you may know, the endangered red wolf is nearing extinction in the United States with less than 120 remaining in the wild. The continuation of the recovery program is vital in order to ensure the current red wolf population does not continue to decline. The presence of these wolves in the wild is extremely important to the ecosystem and offers benefits to many other species of animals as well. The continuation of the recovery program would help restore healthy, viable populations of red wolves in the wild.
If the program is cancelled, it is only a matter of time before these beautiful creatures become extinct. For this reason, I urge you to support the Red Wolf Recovery Program and ensure its continuation.
[Your Name Here]
