WHAT IS THE ACTION?
The action below is a letter-writing campaign that auto-populates a pre-written letter using your information to target your specific representatives.
WHY ARE WOLVES AT RISK?
In October 2020, the Trump Administration officially removed the gray wolf from the endangered species list as part of its broader goal of undermining and weakening the Endangered Species Act. Since then, states like Wisconsin, Idaho, and Montana have passed legislation that both allows and encourages the mass slaughter (up to 90%) of wolf populations. In February of 2021, hunters in Wisconsin killed at least 216 wolves in less than 60 hours, far exceeding the state's kill limit and angering tribal communities. Despite the devastation, state policymakers issued a kill quota of an additional 300 wolves for the hunts starting in November.
Wolves serve as important ecosystem guardians and the decimation of the American wolf population will have a cascading effect on wildlife and habitats across the country. To prevent this from happening, we need U.S. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland and President Joe Biden to act now and reverse the Trump Administration's delisting.

Write a Letter (Younger Advocates)
We’ve prepared age-specific materials for a summer letter writing campaign to mobilize young voices on behalf of wolves. Our goal is to educate young people about the relisting issue while also getting as many letters sent to the White House as possible. These materials include:
Two versions of a pre-addressed postcard with our rewriting extinction comic strip to color in (Grades K-5). In addition to a pre-written message, there’s a short section for kids to write their own short message. Postcard 1 | Postcard 2
An ‘advocacy guide’ for young adults to write their own letter to the White House (Grades 6-12). Advocacy Guide
Please share photos of finished letters or drawings with the #RelistWolves hashtag on social media - we’ll also be sharing them across our social accounts!
Sample social post of finished letters: So proud of our young advocates making their voice heard! President Biden, #RelistWolves!
