06 December 2010 Don’t Let Salazar Sell Out Our Wolves Posted by: Elizabeth Kricfalusi | 2 comments | Share: Secretary Salazar's plan will not only threaten the future of wolves in the Northern Rockies—but the very foundation of the Endangered Species Act. Think the Secretary of the Interior wouldn’t sell out our wolves and the Endangered Species Act? Think again. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has been negotiating directly with the governors of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, and we now have strong reason to believe that he is going to promote legislative language to eliminate life-saving protections for wolves in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and portions of Washington, Oregon, and Utah. Don’t let Secretary Salazar sell out our wolves and the Endangered Species Act. Write your senators and urge them to oppose this awful plan. Under Salazar’s proposal, wolves would be delisted and lose federal protection. They would also no longer be subject to the ESA at any time or under any circumstances, except at the sole discretion of the Secretary of the Interior. Hundreds of wolves—maybe more than a thousand—could die! Help save the lives of wolves and protect the Endangered Species Act. Please take action now. Once the Endangered Species Act is weakened in such a way, it would invite further outrages… dealing a serious blow to the very foundation of the Act, the bedrock conservation law in this country. We don’t have much time to stop Secretary Salazar’s plan. Please urge your senators to reject Interior Secretary Salazar’s backroom deal to remove protections for wolves and harm the ESA. 2 Responses to “Don’t Let Salazar Sell Out Our Wolves” Post Your Comment Click here to cancel reply.
