This is a time of crisis for the wild red wolf population in North Carolina. Ten red wolves have been illegally shot and killed since January 2013—including one in January 2014. Wildlife advocates need to speak up and speak out. Letters-to-the-editor in newspapers and short opinion pieces are powerful advocacy tools. PLEASE take a few minutes and write to your local paper or to one of the major papers in North Carolina. Please review the Letter-to-the-Editor Guidelines for assistance in preparing your letter.
