1. Help Grizzly Bears Survive in Yellowstone National Park!

While grizzlies in Yellowstone National Park (YNP) have been snoozing, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services (USFWS) has been busy developing what they consider a recovery plan for the bear population.

Far from recovered, the species still survives under the protective cover of the Endangered Species Act (ESA), but may be delisted as early as 2014. YNP is one of only five pockets in North America where the bears can still be found, but the threats they and other animals face in the world’s first established national park are increasing. Increased human-caused mortality and commercial development, including oil and gas drilling, mining, logging and road building destroy bear habitat. Scientists agree that once the habitat is gone, so will be YNP’s grizzlies.

Unfortunately, the recovery plan for Yellowstone’s grizzlies is highly inadequate, as it does not address the most pressing threats that could push the park’s bears back to the brink of extinction. Please click here to take action now.

2. Please Take Action Now to Prevent Extension of Wolf Slaughter

The brutal history of wolf slaughter is repeating itself in Montana where the state wildlife agency, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) has proposed to extend the hunting and trapping season from a previous five-months to a nearly seven-month long season for 2013-14.

While an official minimum of 225 wolves in Montana were killed by hunters and trappers during a five-month long persecution season last year, FWP now wants to  extend the killing season to nearly seven months of torture and terror for wolves and their families, and increase the number of wolves one individual can legally kill from three to five wolves.

An extended hunting/trapping season will likely kill pregnant females, who give birth in April; several hundred wolves will be killed to meet FWP’s objective to reduce Montana’s wolf population down to 400-500 individuals; Hunters and trappers can shoot wolves drawn to baited traps but not captured (this is a clear violation of Montana’s own policy of prohibiting baiting); Electronic calls would be allowed to lure wolves in front of guns awaiting to kill them.

FWP is accepting comments nationwide on or before June 24, 5 p.m. Please click here to take action for wolves now.




at the tip of our fingers,
life and death.
we will continue our fight,
until our last dying
breath.
