We Can’t Let the Wolf Recovery Slip Away

Keep Endangered Species Act Protections for Gray Wolves

Gray wolves have been in the federal government’s crosshairs for years, but the latest proposal the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is considering is the most drastic anti-wolf policy yet. If the plan goes forward, nearly every Endangered Species Act protection for gray wolves in the contiguous 48 states would be gone.

It wasn’t that long ago that we were desperate to get more wolves in the wild. These predators serve an incredibly important role in western ecosystems, keeping other wildlife in check. Restoring wolves to Yellowstone in the 1990s restored balance to the ecosystem.

But once wolves started recovering, it didn’t take long for anti-wolf activists to start chipping away at their protections. As wolves lost federal protections, states have started allowing wolf hunting with quotas so high they could wipe out entire populations. We’ve worked so hard to ensure wolves have a place in the wild. We can’t let it all go to waste.

Tell the Obama Administration to abandon all plans to withdraw protections for gray wolves.

Thank you for taking action,

I got this in email and thought it worth sharing-it boggles the mind and the heart that some people really don’t mind exterminating an entire species from the face of the Earth for either their convenience or their misconceptions. We can only hope that the growing awareness and perspective Shift going on will drag enough people into common sense before it is too late.

I don’t understand why people can’t get over that whole “humans are the only thing that counts” attitude, and learn to live with other parts of nature, indeed become the functioning *part* of nature we once were and should be. We don’t need to kill off (ie eliminate)other creatures to survive, indeed we may ensure our own extinction best by increasing the extinction of other species! :-/

White House.Gov Petition for Palestine

Please sign this petition and post it everywhere, share it with everyone you can.
It is an absolute travesty that my President who I voted for and worked to elect would continue the grotesque and ridiculous “Negroponte Doctrine” of supporting and blocking criticism of Israel’s actions at the UN no matter WHAT they do.
Are we Israeli’s or Americans? Why should we OBEY a foreign government at all much less when they are committing obvious and obscene human rights violations?
There was apparently a peace accord being worked on behind the scenes between the Palestinian Hamas leader who was murdered the other day and some faction of the Israeli government.
It is sick that the faction in power is more invested in power than in PEACE for ALL citizens there, Israeli and Palestinian. The PEOPLE are suffering on both sides, and it is up to US in the USA to stop the support that allows the nutjobs in power there to keep the suffering going. Without Obama’s backing Netanyahu cannot keep this up.
PLEASE sign this and share it widely!
