Howling for Wolves
WildEarth Guardians is working hard for wolves on the western landscape by advocating legal protections for wolves on the ground, pressing for prompt wolf reintroduction, and protecting the wild places that wolves need.
WildEarth Guardians believes that wolves need the wild, and the wild needs wolves.
We believe wolves should be allowed to work their ecological magic, in numbers sufficient to keep elk and deer alert and moving in a more natural fashion and for native ecosystems to feel the ripple effect of a top predator restored to former glory.
How you can help
One of the most powerful forces in the wolf’s corner is the American public. Time and time again, public opinion has heartily supported the return and protection of this iconic creature. Write a letter to the editor in support of wolves, and then tell the U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to ban trapping in the range of lobos in New Mexico.
Author and member Christine Baleshta, along with California artist Susanne Belcher, have published Looking for 527, the story of Yellowstone Wolf 527F whose collar Baleshta sponsored. The wolf was killed in Montana's first wolf hunt in 2009. All royalties from book sales are currently being donated directly to the Yellowstone Park Foundation.
