Save the Lobo at Hon-Dah December 3, 2013

Stand for Wolves at Public Hearing near Pinetop, Arizona!

none

Fifteen years after they were reintroduced, only 75 Mexican gray wolves remain in the wild, and they have undergone dangerous genetic deterioration due to government and private shooting and trapping, along with a freeze on wolf releases to the wild.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service now proposes changes to Mexican wolf management —two good changes and many more that threaten the lobos’ survival and recovery.

The Fish and Wildlife Service will hold a public hearing on its proposal on Tuesday, December 3 in Pinetop, AZ.  Your voice is needed at this hearing to show support for the lobo.

The Koch brothers, secretive anti-conservation and anti-labor billionaires, have teamed up with the agricultural industry to sway the government at this event.  

You and other supporters of the Mexican wolf are all that will stand between extinction and survival for these critically endangered, beautiful and intelligent animals.

Please stand up and speak up for the lobo on December 3.

Location:
Hon-Dah Conference Center, 777 Highway 260, near Pinetop, AZ 85935
(3 miles outside of Pinetop at the Junction of Hwy 260 and Hwy 73)

Schedule:

From 3:00 p.m. until the hearing ends, conservation groups will host a hospitality room at the Hondah Conference Center where wolf supporters can get information, coffee, and help with comments.

3:30 to 5:00 p.m. US Fish and Wildlife Service Public Information meeting.  Be forewarned: the information presented in this meeting will include propaganda to support delisting the gray wolf and reducing protections for Mexican wolves. 

6:00 to 8:30 p.m. Public Hearing on wolf proposals

This is a historic opportunity. A critical mass of supporters in Pinetop on December 3 can turn the tide for the Mexican gray wolf.  Please save the date and spread the word.
