Wolf Petition

PETITION: Grant wolves federal protection by listing them as threatened in the Endangered Species Act

TARGET: Secretary of the US Department of the Interior, Ryan Zinke

Scientific evidence has shown that the population of grey wolves in the United States is severely in danger of becoming extinct. From the once bountiful population before 1978, wolves have been reduced to solely two populations in the lower 48 states. Meanwhile, 95% of the area that wolves once lived in, now remains empty and barren. This is due to the threats that wolves face in these regions such as hunters and trappers. In order for the species of grey wolves to fully recover, they must be held under federal protection. Without this, they are in severe danger of ceasing to exist.

Wolves are necessary to maintain biodiversity in the environment as they help to reduce the effects of overpopulation in prey species and protect and maintain a healthy ecosystem. Without the presence of grey wolves, the ecosystem is thrown off balance and a great species is lost. Even with this risk at hand, many states are still allowing hunters and trappers to kill grey wolves. This needs to be stopped by the intervention of federal laws.

We, the undersigned, are asking for grey wolves to be listed as threatened throughout the lower 48 states of the United States and given full protection under the Endangered Species Act. We cannot stand to see these magnificent creatures be lost forever. Thank you for helping us to fight for the lives of this precious species!

People know that animals play vital roles in general that help the ecosystem thrive and survive, even though without the notion a person with common awareness can understand where this is going when someone says that an animals life is in danger and it's time to act or feel something is wrong and something has to be done eventually in time. Wolves have been hunted to a surprising amount of numbers and it's not good, not for the environment and not for the wolves that endure this sort of event that I can imagine is not a simple thing. I can imagine it being a painful experience all around. If anything could be done sooner to keep certain animals safer then I hope it can be done in time. We only have so much time and it can slip through our fingers in a moment...I never knew I would actually live in a timeline when a certain kind of Rhino would literally become the last of it's kind from hunting and die off. I don't know what could have been done to change that sooner and make that event never take place but..I do know it's important period. If something can be done it needs to be done. If it can only be done another time then it still should happen. As long as we live in this world we can only work together and make progress and help out one another in various ways. I know wolves are not gone yet but we don't need to see that happen because of a mistake that could be taken care of. We know we can do a lot, and we need help or that's that. No more a lot of things without people who can help out in time and make change we need. Hopefully it can happen before anything happens that can't ever really "unhappen" for these animals that just need the help that they need.

Wolves are important and gave just as much right to live as we do if not more!! They were here first.

The changes and enrichment of the Yellowstone ecosystem speak more eloquently than I ever could for nature's need for God's dogs. Ranchers rile against them, but there are ways to protect livestock from wolves, and people willing to teach and help with that protection. Many ranchers have already leaned to live with these magnificent creatures, all could if they were willing to learn. It's wrong to vilify an animal for doing the job God created it to do. Only humans destroy nature and then blame others for the damage we have done ourselves.
