Wild animal protection – defending wolves, coyotes, bears, and other native carnivores
Defend Native Carnivores
Nevertheless, native carnivores continue to face misguided persecution at the hands (and guns) of humans. Many state wildlife agencies hold little regard for the best available science and ignore most people’s values, which strongly favor native carnivore conservation.
We watchdog federal and Western state agencies to ensure their policies and practices allow healthy populations of native carnivores to thrive. We believe there are ways to share our Western home with carnivores that do not include trapping or shooting them, and we aim to cultivate coexistence with these incredible creatures.
Defend the Endangered Species Act
The Endangered Species Act is our country’s most essential environmental law protecting plants and animals, yet some members of Congress want to weaken the law. Tell Congress you value native wildlife and want to see all imperiled species protected.
