This past fall, the US Fish and Wildlife Service announced their decision to significantly reduce the wild red wolf population, which only exists in northeastern North Carolina.
On Tuesday, the agency gave notice the start of a 60-day public comment period concerning their ill-advised proposal to pull back hard on the wild population of wolves in North Carolina. Now is our chance to tell the USFWS their plan will almost certainly condemn the species to extinction in the wild.
Let your voice be heard and resist USFWS’s attempt to undermine the very mandate their agency is supposed to uphold. Submit your comment below from now until July 24, or attend one of the following public meetings.
June 6, 2017, 6:30–8:30 p.m. in Swan Quarter, NC
