Stand With Wolves in Albuquerque Nov. 20
The Southwest's Mexican gray wolves could soon get a much-needed leg up to their recovery. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to expand roaming areas to allow wolves to roam further and establish new territories outside their current boundaries. The Service is also planning to release captive-bred wolves into the wildlands of New Mexico.
Unfortunately the federal proposal still restricts wolf movements and excludes important habitats in the Grand Canyon and southern Rocky Mountains. Wolves would not be allowed to roam north of Interstate 40. There are also some troubling provisions in the plan that could lead to more wolf killing.
The Service is holding a hearing in Albuquerque, N.M. to get public input on Mexican gray wolf management. Please join the Center for Biological Diversity and allies to save Mexican gray wolves on Wednesday, Nov. 20 in Albuquerque.
Before the hearing talk with other activists and learn why Mexican gray wolves are so important. Then head into the public hearing with us to make sure that plan becomes a reality.
RSVP using the form below.
If you would like to speak at the hearing, we recommend arriving around 5 p.m. to sign up in advance. We're hoping to draw a crowd, but that may mean that not everyone will get a chance to speak.
