Suppose you’re a senior member of the Trump administration responsible for wildlife conservation.
Tell me, what on Earth would possess you to open National Park lands to brutal and vicious killing of wolves, bears and other predators?
That’s exactly what’s being considered.
And Mark, that’s just the beginning of the death and destruction this administration is unleashing.
Make a generous gift to Defenders of Wildlife today and your gift will be tripled, thanks to a match offer from our Board of Directors and President’s Circle. They will kick in $2 for every $1 you give, up to a total of $150,000.
But please hurry, the match offer ends Friday, August 31st.
This heinous proposal would open National Park Service lands in Alaska to a brutal array of killing efforts. In the crosshairs are bears, wolves and other predators. The proposal would allow for new, cruel hunting practices on national preserves, like baiting bears with doughnuts or bacon or shooting mother wolves and their pups in their dens to artificially boost moose and other game animal numbers.
I wish I could say that was the only appalling proposal we’re facing right now, but sadly it’s the tip of the iceberg.
Red wolves. Recent U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) proposals would confine these wolves to a tiny patch of habitat and permit landowners to shoot any wolf that happens to wander onto their property.
Mexican gray wolves. This smaller cousin of the gray wolf continues to hang by a thread, and FWS seems uninterested in mounting a serious recovery effort. A so-called ‘recovery plan’ submitted in 2017 is basically a recipe for extinction. It disregards the best available science, limits the species’ population, and cuts off access to vital recovery habitat.
Polar bears. Global warming’s effect on the Arctic is especially dramatic. With sea ice melting, polar bears in the U.S. are increasingly dependent on the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. But instead of protecting this critical habitat, the administration is opening the region to oil exploration. That’s really bad news if you happen to be a polar bear.
The list goes on and on. When you combine all of these cruel proposals, you can appreciate the scope of danger facing our precious wildlife.
When you support Defenders, you’re a part of our community of wildlife activists. You’re supporting wildlife lawyers who, right this minute, are in court fighting for the wildlife you love. You’re supporting organizers to engage every voice in America to protect wildlife. And you’re supporting a team of advocates who work every day in Washington, D.C. and in statehouses across the country to save wildlife from destructive policy proposals.
Mark, I continue to have hope because most Americans favor strong wildlife protections and because people like you refuse to give up the fight.
From the bottom of my heart, my deepest thanks for your commitment, compassion and generosity.
P.S. These attacks are stretching our resources to the limit. Your gift, along with the matching dollars, will help keep us in the fight!
