Take Action for Wolves, Sea Turtles and Manatees
Speak out for imperiled animals.
In April 2011, the U.S. Congress tucked an unprecedented “wolf de-listing rider” into the federal budget bill and it passed. Write your representative now and urge him or her to oppose the proposed House Interior Appropriations Bill with provisions that threaten wild Mexican gray wolves and endangered Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles with extinction and pose a significant threat of increased injury and death for gentle manatees.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
I strongly urge you to OPPOSE the House Interior Appropriations bill.
This bill is an all-out attack on the natural treasures that are our children's inheritance. I specifically object to these amendments...
The bill also proposes deep cuts in funding for our National Wildlife Refuges and key conservation programs to keep our imperiled wildlife and wild lands safe.
Sacrificing our wildlife and environment in the name of fiscal austerity is unacceptable and could result in increased costs in the future to clean our air and water and keep us healthy. Please oppose this awful bill.
Thank you for considering my comments. I look forward to your prompt reply.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
