What You Can Do

Don’t let the NM Commission block lobo recovery.

Wolves are a federally endangered species whose reintroduction is the responsibility of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. As carnivores, wolves are crucial to the balance of nature and healthy ecosystems.

But now the New Mexico Game Commission may attempt to give itself authority to deny permission to release Mexican wolves into the wild.

Please stand up for the Mexican wolf at the N.M. Game Commission meeting in Santa Fe, which has been
rescheduled for Aug. 28.

Game commissioners could also vote to deny the holding and import of captive wolves in our state. Moreover, these provisions would apply to any “predatory animal” as this proposal is written.

If you can't attend the meeting, PLEASE click here to email the New Mexico Game Commission.

Tell commissioners that wolves are important to nature and that the Commission's anti-carnivore proposal is not sound management. It belies a narrow, anti-wildlife self-interest that does not serve the majority of New Mexicans.

Where: (Room changed) New Mexico State Capitol, Room 321, 491 Old Santa Fe Trail, Santa Fe
