FROM  Endangered Species Coalition

ACTION

Tell your Senators and Representative to VOTE NO on the Idaho and Montana Wolf Management Act of 2011- HR 510! Congress is considering several bills that would for the first time in history remove federal protections for a single species - WOLVES - under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

Never before has Congress acted to legislatively de-list a species from the Endangered Species Act.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Congress is considering several bills that would--for the first time in history--remove federal protections for a single species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

Bills introduced by Congressman Denny Rehberg (R-MT) and Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), seek to strip all of America's wolves of vital, life-saving Endangered Species Act protections. These bills would adversely affect the recovery all wolves, including the highly endangered Mexican gray wolf.

Additionally, these bills set a dangerous precedent. Never before has Congress acted to legislatively de-list a species from the Endangered Species Act. If successful, these bills would allow politics to take the place of sound science in the future recovery of endangered species in the United States.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
