About the Petition
Over the past two decades, the federal government has worked to protect and promote the grey wolf in the American West, bringing them back from the brink of extinction. Officially off the endangered species list in 2009, grey wolves are threatened again.
An apex predator, wolves are great for their ecosystem’s biodiversity. A study following wolves in Yellowstone Park, showed that they increased the biodiversity of the park by curbing elk populations and allowing more vegetation to grow.
Organizations like the Defenders of Wildlife and Earthjustice are petitioning Governor Mead to put in place policies that protect wolves, instead of killing them. If you support their work, sign this petition to stop the slaughter of wolves in Wyoming.
