From NRDC:

I am dismayed that you are carrying out the Bush Administration's plan to take gray wolves off the endangered species list, leaving them vulnerable to mass killing. In so doing, you have abandoned President Obama's pledge to follow a science-based approach to environmental protection.

According to a letter signed by some 230 scientists, a severe reduction in current wolf numbers would dramatically increase the threat of extinction for a gray wolf population that is still recovering. If you hand wolf management back to the states, more than 600 wolves could be caught in the crossfire.

Wolves once thrived in much of the lower 48 states. Today, they reside in only five percent of their former range. If there is one place in this country where they should be allowed to flourish, it is in and around Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, and the remote Selway Bitterroot ecosystem in central Idaho.

I urge you to withdraw this Bush-era plan and submit it to rigorous scientific review. The wolves of the Northern Rockies are world-renowned as living icons of the American West. Please call off the guns and develop a sound wolf recovery plan that ensures a healthy future for these magnificent creatures.
