WHY THIS MATTERS
The future of gray wolf recovery is in jeopardy, as Congress continues their attacks on the vulnerable wolves.
Last month, the House of Representatives passed HR 6874, a horrible anti-wolf bill that would severely undermine the Endangered Species Act, and your ability to defend wildlife in court.
The misleadingly named “Manage Our Wolves” Act strips Endangered Species protections from all gray wolves in the lower 48, handing their management over to hostile state wildlife agencies. It even limits your ability to hold wildlife agencies accountable in court, setting a dangerous precedent.
Now House Republicans are trying to add the text of the “Manage Our Wolves” act as a rider into the House’s must-pass spending bill. If they succeed, these attacks will become law, and gray wolf recovery would be devastated.
Members of Congress in both chambers can pressure their leadership to get this toxic anti-wildlife, anti-accountability rider removed. But we must demand it.
