05 July 2013 Wolf Weekly Wrap-up Posted by: John Motsinger | Leave a comment | Share: Happy 4th of July, everyone! While you’re celebrating our nation’s independence this weekend, we hope you’ll take a moment to consider all the native plants and animals that make America so special. Each one plays a vital role in creating healthy landscapes, providing us with clean air, clean water and abundant natural resources. The United States has been a leader in wildlife conservation for decades, passing some of the world’s most progressive environmental laws. The Endangered Species Act has fully restored iconic species like the bald eagle and rescued hundreds more from the brink of extinction. But one of our nation’s greatest ESA success stories is now at risk. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is prepared to give up on gray wolves before the job is finished. Watch our new video and join our efforts to protect the future of America’s wolves: To find out how you can stand up for wolves, visit www.defenders.org/savewolves.
