Please ask your state senator to reject SB1185 appropriation; wolf recovery; litigation costs (Griffin, Allen, Burges, et al.), a bill that appropriates $250,000 for litigation to challenge any expansion of the Mexican wolf recovery program in Arizona.
These highly endangered animals are an important part of our public lands and heritage. They help to keep their prey species — primarily elk and deer — fitter and as a top predator also provide a check on coyotes and other mid-level predators.
At a time when the budget is tight, it makes no sense to appropriate dollars to hinder an effort that most Arizonans support. Please ask legislators to reject this bill and to instead support recovery of the Mexican gray wolf in the Southwest.
