Representative Pearce is supporting efforts to lessen protections for the struggling wild population of 50 Mexican gray wolves. Currently there are three bills with varying status in Congress that would remove endangered species protections from lobos, and with representatives like Pearce, there is a danger that an anti-Mexican wolf rider could be tacked onto a must-pass bill, as was done to strip Northern Rocky Mountain gray wolves of their Endangered Species Act protections recently.

Please contact your members of Congress today and ask that they take a stand against anti-wolf bills or riders and work for full protections for these important, highly endangered animals.
