and by fostering public involvement in red wolf conservation.
RWC Action Alert
The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is under intense pressure from anti-wolf forces to walk away from its red wolf recovery efforts. It is essential that we step up and speak out in support of the red wolf, an animal that belongs to everyone in this country.
PLEASE help us walk the long walk for red wolves by sending a LETTER in support of the Red Wolf Recovery Program! A 60-day program review is currently underway, and the decision about the future of the recovery program will come in October 2014. The USFWS Southeast Regional Office in Atlanta and the USFWS Director in Washington DC need to know that the red wolf has legions of supporters.
Please see the Red Wolf Coalition Action Alert for more information and for instructions on sending your letter of support.
