Save the Red Wolves from Extinction

red-wolf-by-christine-majul

Target: Dan Ashe, Director of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: Expedite efforts to repopulate red wolves in the wild.

Federal officials announced they’ve stopped repopulation efforts of red wolves in eastern North Carolina because they feel they need to decide how feasible it is to maintain the animals in the wild. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has been releasing captive-bred wolves in the wild to restore the population of endangered wolves. There is estimated to be anywhere from 50 to 75 red wolves currently roaming in the wild.

Although officials say the efforts will continue, possibly with a different strategy, by the end of the year, this leaves nearly six months of no efforts at all that could cause a bigger decline in the population.

Wildlife animal advocates claim that having captive-born pups introduced to female red wolves in the wild has assisted in increasing population numbers by replacing wolves killed by hunters or car accidents. Lax protections coupled with hunters murdering these innocent animals have been a hot topic recently in conversations surrounding these endangered wolves.

Not long before this recent announcement, wildlife officials in the state wanted the wolves to be declared extinct and for all efforts to save them to end, citing that the wolves are problems for nearby humans. These amazing creatures are doing nothing wrong but trying to live and survive in a world where humans have nearly wiped them out. It’s our responsibility to ensure they are able to do so. Urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to expedite efforts to repopulate red wolves in the wild rather than stop trying to help.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dan Ashe,

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced they’ve stopped repopulation efforts of red wolves in eastern North Carolina because they feel they need to decide how feasible it is to maintain the animals in the wild. This leaves nearly six months of no efforts at all that could cause a bigger decline in the population.

These innocent creatures are simply trying to live and survive in a world where humans have nearly wiped them out. It’s our responsibility to ensure they are able to do so. I urge you to expedite efforts to repopulate red wolves in the wild rather than stop trying to help.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
