Take Action for Mexican Gray Wolves!

MEXICAN GRAY WOLVES MAY GET STRONGER ENDANGERED SPECIES PROTECTIONS!
On August 3, 2010, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced it will consider giving stronger protection to the Mexican gray wolf by classifying it as an endangered subspecies in its own right. This announcement was the result of petitions filed by WildEarth Guardians, the Center for Biological Diversity, and the Rewilding Institute, making the case that lobos deserve their own listing, separate from other, less imperiled gray wolves.
The deadline for public comments on the new listing is Oct. 4. There are two ways to comment:
• Go to the notice online, then follow the instructions for submitting comments (it takes a little while to load).
• Write mail to Public Comments Processing, Attn: FWS-R2-ES-2010-0045; Divison of Policy and Directives Management; U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 4401 N. Fairfax Drive, Suite 222; Arlington, VA 22203.
All comments will be posted on the www.regulations.gov website.
