Save the Lobo in Hon-Dah/Pinetop Aug 11 and Truth or Consequences Aug 13!
Speak Out at Public Hearings to Save the Lobo from Extinction
Sixteen years after they were reintroduced, only 83 Mexican gray wolves remain in the wild. The wild lobos have undergone dangerous genetic deterioration due to government and private shooting and trapping, along with a freeze on releases of new wolves from captivity.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has proposed changes to Mexican wolf management —two good changes and many more that will worsen the lobo’s already-tenuous plight.
The FWS will hold public hearings on its proposal on Monday, August 11 at Hon-dah, near Pinetop, Arizona and on Wednesday, August 13 in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. They must listen to all those speaking up for and against the lobo.
The Koch brothers, secretive anti-conservation and anti-labor billionaires, have teamed up with anti-wolf special interests to influence the government and doom the Mexican wolf.
You and other supporters of the Mexican wolf are all that will stand between extinction and survival for these critically endangered, beautiful, intelligent animals. Please speak up for the lobo at a hearing in August.
