Demand ESA protections for vulnerable Alexander Archipelago wolves

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.

Urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list Alaska’s Alexander Archipelago wolves under the ESA and protect them from threats to their survival!
