There’s a unique wolf population in the far Northwest that needs your help!
Alexander Archipelago wolves are a subspecies of gray wolf that makes their home along coasts from southeast Alaska to Canada. The situation for these wolves has grown so dire that they now qualify as a threatened species – and for the protections that come with listing under the Endangered Species Act (ESA)
Time is running out to protect these wolves. One sub-population on Prince of Wales Island was nearly wiped out in a killing frenzy that took the lives of saw a record-high 165 wolves killed in a two-month period this past winter – a population last estimated at 170 animals!
Throughout the forests where they live, these animals are increasingly vulnerable to threats from industrial logging, road building, trapping and hunting, and large-scale habitat loss.
ESA protections could change the fate of these struggling wolves for the better.
