Anonymous asked:Happy Wolf Awareness Week to you. :) Thanks for helping celebrate such a wonderful creature.
The fate of our wolves now rest in the hands of state officials. And while states like Oregon and Washington are adopting progressive plans to welcome wolves into their states, the legislatures and some governors and officials in Idaho, Wyoming, Montana and Utah are taking a more extreme approach to wolf management.
As bad as things are, the situation could get worse. Some extremists are pushing for the elimination of all wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies.
Congressional leadership now intends to use the current budget bill that funds the government to the end of September as a vehicle to eliminate federal protections for wolves.
Not only do these provisions substitute politics for science in the protection of endangered species, but they have NOTHING to do with the federal budget!
The language being considered removes federal protections from wolves (“delists” wolves from the endangered species list) not only in Idaho and Montana, but also in states like Oregon and Washington where the wolf population is only now beginning to get a toehold.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge — a national treasure that polar bears, arctic foxes, millions of migratory birds and other wildlife depend on for survival.
To celebrate this special occasion, thousands of people from across the country are calling on President Obama to permanently protect this unique national treasure and the wildlife that depend on it to survive.
Sorry I haven’t been posting guys. I’ve been so busy with school and work.
Do any of you amazing followers want to help me runs this beautiful blog? :)
Mother seals can barely find ice to give birth on. The bottom is dropping out of the world market for seal fur. Thousands of restaurants refuse to serve Canadian seafood until the slaughter stops. Yet Canada presses ahead with the killing as usual.
Let’s show Canada that the end to the seal slaughter is as inevitable as melting ice.
