On the verge of extinction

This is a great concern of mine since my daughter and I have been supporting grey and timber wolves half of our lives.
Our first pet as a family was an awesome loving timberwolf. Read article in "Our Personal Pet Stories".
In hopes that this will raise awareness to others and support in the US for these beautiful animals.........By BJ of EXPRESSIONS


Congressman Denny Rehberg has introduced legislation to eliminate life-saving protections for wolves across the country.

Urge your U.S. Representative to oppose efforts to eliminate vital protections for our wolves.

Dear Supporter: 42-That’s how many Mexican gray wolves are left in wild… in the entire world. These wolves – found in the wild only in Arizona and New Mexico – face plenty of threats, including illegal killing by anti-wolf extremists. But now a Montana Congressman is taking aim at the life-saving protections these and other rare and beautiful animals need to survive. Please take action now. Urge your U.S. representative to oppose Congressman Denny Rehberg’s attempts to eliminate vital, life-saving protections for America’s wolves. Rehberg’s two bills would eliminate Endangered Species Act protections for every single wolf in the Southwest, Midwest and Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies.The result? A no-holds-barred approach to wolf killing that would end efforts to stop wolf killings in the Southwest and could see Idaho lawmakers make good on their promise to “remove wolves by whatever means necessary.”If passed, this legislation would also be the first ever to exempt a single species from the Endangered Species Act – setting a dangerous precedent for removing protections for other imperiled wildlife.Make no mistake: These bills are bad for wolves, bad for the Endangered Species Act, and bad for the future of all America’s wildlife. Help safeguard the future of wolves and other wildlife in America. Send your message right now. We need to send a loud, clear message to Congress. Please take action now and help us send more than 50,000 messages to Congress by Friday. Even with Endangered Species Act protections, the fragile population of wolves in the American Southwest is in danger. Without them, these wolves could be doomed. Please take action now. For the Wild Ones,
Rodger SchlickeisenPresidentDefenders of Wildlife
P.S. We are anticipating many attacks on protections for wolves during this session of Congress, and we will be counting on you to help speak out for sound science and a lasting future for these magnificent creatures. Please stay tuned.

This article was sent to me-BJ from "Defenders of Wildlife" which my oldest daughter & I support. Please help send the message to congress.
I have a studio on Artfire called "ExpressionsbyBJ" and sell or make jewelry and jewelry related items. Also, a few animal rescue support items.

Thank you TS Beading for adding the link. I am a member/supporter of "Defenders of WildLife" and that it where I got the email from, but I didn't think to add a link to DWL. Appreciate that. This is such an important cause right now.
If anyone cares about these wolves, then it is important to speak out for them by Friday, before they meet on this issue. Thanks

Thank you for this information about the wolves. And for the means by which we can speak out. I hope we get enough support to prevent their protection being eliminated.

I had no idea the wolf population was so low. I can see you have a big place in your heart for these beautiful animals. I will take any opportunity I find to speak for these wonderful animals. Thank you for the informative article...I lived in southern Arizona for 12 years.
