We have learned in the last hour that policy riders that would have delisted Great Lakes wolves have been eliminated from the final version of the omnibus spending bill! This is fantastic news and means that wolves in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin will not face hunting and trapping seasons in the near future!
This is an enormous win for both gray wolves and for the Endangered Species Act. Had the War on Wolves Act rider advanced, it would have paved the way for even more politically-based listing decisions. We have heard from allies in Congress that senators and representatives received thousands ofthem to keep these wolves protected. The bill is not perfect, as other species are still at risk, but make no mistake, this is a HUGE win for wildlife!
This victory for wolves would not have been possible without your voices.
