December 15 Wolf Rally and Hearing: Come Howl for a Wild Future! (Seattle)
Wolves are fascinating creatures. They inspire us, symbolize survival and only inhabit our wildest landscapes. While Washington's last wolves were slaughtered in the 1930's, the wolves are finally returning to our state after being gone for almost a century. Come join the Sierra Club, Defenders of Wildlife and other conservationists as we do all we can to protect wolves and their habitat! We invite you to join us for an afternoon of food, storytelling, public testimony, wolf-mask crafting, and public adv...ocacy. Together, we hope to howl for a wild future!
Despite their fragile recovery, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is considering removing wolves from the endangered species list, which would make them fair game for hunting, trapping, and would jeopardize their recovery in Washington and all over the country. This is NOT the time to take away important national protections for this endangered species. Event will be indoors.
Who: You, the Sierra Club, Defenders of Wildlife & friends!
What: Washington for Wolves rally and citizens hearing*

Our best chance to stop this reckless plan from moving forward is to show the Fish and Wildlife Service that American’s are serious about protecting gray wolves. This is a powerful message we’re directing at the Fish and Wildlife Service – that Washingtonians won’t abandon our wolves without a fight!Washington is home to prime wolf habitat, yet there are only about 50 wolves in the state. Show Fish and Wildlife Service that you support wolves in the Pacific Northwest!
