IT IS TIME TO COME TOGETHER IN WASHINGTON DC, FOR A PUBLIC MARCH AND RALLY, TO DEMAND FEDERAL PROTECTION OF AMERICA’S WOLVES IN ALL FIFTY STATES! IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
Sometimes getting things done requires showing up and being there, in person. If ever there was a time for wolf defenders to come together and have our voices heard, as one, now is the time.
We have until early September to stop yet another anti-wolf, anti-ecology proposal by the Obama administration and his Department of Interior, that would remove federal protections for America's wolves in the 44 states where those protections are still in effect. We cannot let this happen. Enough!
The new US Secretary of Interior, Sally Jewell, recently signed off on this devastatingly wrong-headed proposal. It is an unjust, scientifically unjustifiable and morally unacceptable proposal.
Will Secretary Jewell further betray America’s wolves and other persecuted native wildlife, along with America’s wild lands and the respectful, wildlife-loving majority of American citizens, as if she is Ken Salazar in a skirt?
Independent, reputable and objective wildlife scientists and ecologists should be making such profound decisions about the nation’s wildlife, not politicians, not political appointees and not politically compromised federal and state agency biologists.
Prior to this decision Secretary Jewell received two letters from independent wildlife biologists and conservation scientists, upon whose research the proposal was supposedly based. These scientists stated clearly that federally de-listing wolves is exactly the opposite of what their research recommends. These independent scientists and biologists are urging that America's wolves remain federally protected!
Furthermore, the Public Employees for Environmental Protection (PEER), a non-profit organization that defends and protects public agency scientists and other environmental-related public servants who are doing their jobs of protecting America’s land, waters, air and wildlife - in the face of anti-science, anti-environment political forces - has filed suit against the federal government in order to uncover the very likely illegal scheming and political corruption behind the prior federal de-listing of wolves which has already resulted in the brutal persecution, torture and massacre of over 1,600 innocent wolves.
According to the Endangered Species Act, wildlife placed on the Endangered Species List are to be de-listed based solely on "best available science" not due to corrupt politics, political deals or “politicized” science. Once the facts are on the table, we are likely to discover what many of us already know, that throwing wolves off the endangered species list was nothing less than an illegal, immoral and devious political scheme. So exponentially compounding that illegality and injustice, by eviscerating what remains of wolf protections is absurd and unacceptable.
We wolf defenders believe there is a far better way to live on this continent. Something that has never been given the chance to work, either with native people or with native wildlife: decency, respect and co-existence.
Let’s go to Washington to demand that this respect, co-existence and yes, federal protection, begin now, in all fifty states, with America's wolves, one of the continent’s most abused and unjustly persecuted wild beings.
America's wildlife and wild lands policies cannot remain in the hands of brutal, destructive, unethical and dishonest special interests, groups and people. The ecologically destructive and brutal cattle industry should no longer dictate wildlife policy and neither should the filthy fossil fuel industry, the NRA, Safari International (a group of rich guys that slither around the continent and the world killing anything that moves) or all the assorted hunting groups that facilitate so much destruction of wildlife and wildlife habitat while cruelly blaming, demonizing and massacreing defenseless native predators placed on this Earth by the Creator, to live and thrive.
The indisputable scientific fact is that wolves and all natural predators are vital, life-sustaining and precious members of every healthy ecosystem and of this entire planet. And they deserve respect and protection at last, everywhere, for their own sake and for ours!
LET’S GATHER TOGETHER IN WASHINGTON DC, IN AUGUST, TO RALLY AND MARCH FOR AMERICA’S WOLVES, AND DEMAND THAT WOLVES BE FEDERALLY PROTECTED IN ALL FIFTY STATES! IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
