Biden: Restore Crucial Protections for Threatened Gray Wolves

Target: Joseph R. Biden, President-elect, United States of America

Goal: Demand restoration of protected status for gray wolves.

Trump administration officials have officially stripped threatened gray wolf populations throughout most of the United States of their protection under the Endangered Species Act, leaving them vulnerable to greater hunting and predation even as their numbers were recovering from centuries of destructive human activity. Gray wolves are an essential part of many ecosystems across North America, but human settlement, pollution, hunting, and shrinking habitats have destroyed populations throughout much of their historical range.

The revocation of protected status is based on the claim that more than 6,000 wolves now live in wild populations. However, these exist in only limited areas in the northern United States, and wildlife experts say that removing federal protections may severely hinder the gray wolves’ ability to recover outside of these areas. Critics have pointed out the suspicious timing of this decision as the 2020 election winds down. Demand that President-elect Joe Biden pledge to restore protected status to gray wolves to ensure their complete recovery in the regions they once inhabited.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. President-elect,

The gray wolf was once an essential part of ecosystems across North America, helping to control pest populations and provide balance to numerous delicate food chains. Once near extinction, they have made a partial recovery, but that progress could soon be destroyed by the outgoing Trump administration. It falls to you to provide the protection needed by gray wolves to ensure a complete recovery in the coming months as you take up your duties. I urge you to act quickly to save our threatened wildlife.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    ***Notice from site admins: This is false. President Trump has lost the 2020 election and Joe Biden is the President-elect. We are taking the extraordinary step of posting this notice due to the unprecedented and profoundly dishonest attacks by Donald Trump on American democracy and the legitimate voting results.

    The wolves must be saved

  3. Exactly, Michelle Stewart, they MUST BE SAVED!!!

  4. THE PRICK PRESIDENT TRUMP COULD GIVE A DAMN LESS ABOUT ANY ANIMALS AND ALL YOU ASSHOLE REPUBLICANS JUST DO NOT WANT TO SWALLOW THAT. SURE GO KISS HIS BIG FAT ORANGE ASS, AS HE LOVES EVERBODY TO DO. PISS ON HIM AND THAT IS ME BEING EXTREMELY KIND.JOE BIDEN IS AN ANIMAL LOVER. GO JOE!!

    I am Canadian and don’t give a rat’s furry arse about your politics. We gave you a lot of wolves to reset your ecosystems. It worked. Kill them off again, you bunch of trigger happy nitwits and we will fight to make sure you get no more from us.

  6. biden cannot do anything as he is not the President

  7. All wildlife on this earth needs to be protected from the thrill-killers, those who don’t care if animals live or die etc. Those that abuse/thrill kill needs to suffer the same abuse daily until they die. Animals abuse MUST be severely punished NOW….NO more letting these evil punks hurt anything else. They are also a menace to humans as well as animals. They need to be removed from society forever…IMO

    • Absolutely correct. One cannot deplete all Natura resources and kill every living creature and think there are no consequences.
      Covid should have taught everyone that.

      Unfortunately greed and arrogance is what’s destroying the right of animals to be protected.
      Hunting was never a sport- it was meant to be a survival tool during famine, thats not the case now.

      We as humans must protect all resources and animal life otherwise our demise is very near.

    Please do whatever needs to be done to save the Gray Wolf before it is too late!!! by undoing the TRUMP damage …and all animals. Thank You…

  9. Please, restore protected status to gray wolves to ensure their complete recovery in the regions they once inhabited.

  10. OUR MAJESTIC WOLVES NEED ALL THE HELP THEY CAN GET. TO DELIST THEM FROM BEING FEDERALLY FUNDED IS A HUGE MISTAKE AND A GROSS MISJUDGMENT ON THE PART OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. THESE ANIMALS HAVE BEEN PERSECUTED FOR 200 YEARS, JUST FOR BEING WHO AND WHAT THEY ARE. PEOPLE WHO ARE WOLF HATERS FEEL THIS WAY OUT OF FEAR AND IGNORANCE. THEY ARE VITALLY IMPORTANT TO OUR ECOSYSTEMS AND ENVIRONMENTS. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL SOCIAL ANIMALS THAT RAISE THEIR YOUNG AND TEACH THEM HOW TO HUNT TO SUSTAIN THEMSELVES.

    • Not saying tRump started this. We all know this has been going on that long. I saw the 60 Minutes episode on this situation. Obama made a law to prohibit body parts to come to U.S. Guess who overturned that?

  11. Agree all comments.

  12. Biden, Trump or whomever—please save the wolves. I have a house in Wyoming and it kills me to know wolves in my area are being slaughtered. This NEEDS TO STOP!
