Target: Texas Parks and Wildlife Executive Director Carter Smith
Goal: To return the Mexican gray wolf to Texas, ensuring the vitality of the species and the local ecosystem.
The Mexican gray wolf must be restored to its natural home of the Chihuanuan Desert of West Texas. This restoration is vital to the health of the species, as well as the stability of the local wilderness and ecosystem. The Mexican gray wolf was brought to total extinction in the wild of Texas in the 1970s when the remaining two animals were murdered in West Texas, just north of the Big Bend National Park. This is the species’ rightful habitat, and it is our duty to restore it after our role in its extinction.
The state of Texas is currently failing to conserve this species, which is necessary for the healthy continuation of not only the Texas ecosystem, but the heritage of Texas. We must pressure Carter Smith, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Executive Director, to right this wrong and aid the restoration of the Mexican gray wolf to Texas.
Around the American southwest, there is a great need to restore species wiped from the local landscape to their natural habitats after decades of extinction. No other animal is as deserving of a full-throttled restoration than the Mexican gray wolf. It is vital to the sustainability of the local wilderness and ecosystem to restore these wolves to their home.
Dear Director Carter Smith,
It is absolutely vital that you and your team work towards the total restoration of the Mexican gray wolf to Texas. This species is now extinct in this region due to human involvement, and it is our responsibility to correct this for the sake of the species, the wilderness of Texas, and the local ecosystem.
Not only is the restoration of the Mexican Gray Wolf terribly important for the vitality of the region, this animal has immeasurable importance to the culture of Texas and the Southwest. The Mexican gray wolf is part of Texas heritage, and if we continue to allow the extinction of such an important animal as this, then we are allowing a major part of Texan identity to die. Texas has long been known as wolf country, and we shouldn’t allow that to be erased.
No wolves are wild in Texas any longer and this destroys the natural integrity of the ecosystems of the state, as well as the balance of the local wilderness. It is not our role as humans to decide which species are deemed worthy of living. Therefore, we must take action to restore the Mexican gray wolf to Texas.
