While giving Mexican wolves their own Endangered Species Act listing is long overdue, delisting gray wolves throughout the U.S. is counter to protecting Mexican wolves.The proposed rule will leave gray wolves unprotected in places that scientists have said are needed for Mexican wolf recovery, making it more difficult to protect Mexican gray wolves even if they are allowed to expand into new areas.
Delisting gray wolves throughout the lower 48 is premature and unsupported by science.The gray wolf has barely begun to recover or is absent from significant portions of its former range where substantial suitable habitat remains. The very scientists whose research is referenced in the draft rule to remove the gray wolves’ protections have stated publicly that the science does not support the delisting.
Include something about who you are and why you care: E.g. “I am mother, outdoors person, teacher, business owner, scientific, religious, etc.)
Provide your name, address, phone number and address. The paper won’t publish these, but they want to know you are who you say you are.
