Don’t Give Up On Wyoming Wolves

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

Goal: To keep wolves on the endangered species list in Wyoming to ensure their survival and protection.

One of the best methods of animal conservation is the endangered species list. Animals on this list are highly protected by law in order to build their populations to a healthy level. In Wyoming, wolves are facing preemptive delisting which would threaten their existence.

The United States Fish and Wildlife Service has announced that they will take wolves off the endangered species list in Wyoming. While conservation has restored large amount of the wolf population, the animals still face the threat of extinction. The circumstances and facts that are being used to justify this decision are out of date and do not represent the best possible scientific methods.

More alarming are the policies that would affect the wolves if they were removed from the list. The animals will be listed as predators and therefore will be subject to an on-sight shooting policy. Hunters will be able to shoot a wolf whenever and wherever they see it. The Wolves will not even be protected in national forests.

Taking wolves off the endangered species list in Wyoming will also affect populations in other states. On-sight shooting in Wyoming will prohibit the migration of the animals into other states like Colorado or Utah where wolf populations are still struggling.

It is not the right time to delist the wolves of Wyoming, especially under the circumstances. If taken off the endangered species list, the wolf population is bound to decrease back to threatening levels. The animal should not be seen as a predator but as a vital species in need of protection. Sign this petition to the the Director of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Dan Ashe, to keep wolves on the endangered species list in Wyoming.


Dear Dan Ashe, Director, United States Fish and Wildlife Service,

The Fish and Wildlife Service has been one of the greatest resources in animal conservation. Your efforts have helped to preserve the lives of many species, including wolves. However, it is not time to delist wolves in Wyoming as it would greatly threaten their existence.

If the wolves are to be delisted, they are at the mercy of hunting policies that would cause their population to drop significantly. Under Wyoming law, the wolves would be listed as predators and would be allowed to be shot by anyone at any time. The wolves would not even be protected in national forests.

Wolves are known to be a migratory species with interconnected populations across large areas. If they lose protection in Wyoming, wolves in other states would also suffer.

The bottom line is that wolves are still in need of protection and terminating conservation policies would put them in high risk of danger. Your efforts have greatly helped the species in the past and must continue to do so. I respectfully ask you not to remove wolves from the endangered  species list in Wyoming.

    Once again Humanity thinks it has the right to take from the Earth just because some people don’t like certain circumstances. We take their homes, food sources, freedom, water, clean air, I could go on. SAVE OUR WOLVES, OUR EVERYTHING. Long before humanity became supposedly superior, everything lived in balance and peace, there was a reason for that. Wolves play a vital role in the environment, from keeping a control of other wildlife levels and also so therefore the habitats and food sources of all to keeping animals that are not inherent to the land under control. They are an EXTREMELY PEACEFUL AND FAMILY ORIENTATED BEING and WE as humans could learn so much from them as to how to interact properly and peacefully with each other. PLEASE PLEASE HELP SAVE ALL OUR CREATURES.

  4. Michael Guest says:

    Enough is enough. Please take action and don’t abandon the wolves, because it won’t help.

  5. Craig Bunting says:

    Mr. Ashe, History will show how wrong your decisions have been regarding Wolves. You will look like a barbarous and unholy mistake and we will denouce you with joke. We welcome your end at your political appointment.

    Por favor, ayuden a salvar a este hermoso animal. Ellos no nos hacen ningún mal, somos nosotros quienes invadimos cualquier territorio, quienes terminamos con cualquier especie.

  7. So many animals have gone extinct in my lifetime, it is just so terrible, how can we let this happen? When they are all gone, when all of the animals are no more, what then, what then? If the wolves are taken off the list so soon they will surely go extinct as well.
