Picking up on Annie
Remember Kristin’s guest post just two days ago? Annie’s Second Chance?
I’m sure you do.
Well the reason I am using that connection is because I want to share with you an email that was received yesterday.
Despite recommendations by the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s own scientists, they have released a highly politicized Draft Mexican Wolf Recovery Plan, which we fear will lead these severally endangered wolves to extinction.
The draft recovery plan ignores science, gives special interests controlling power over recovery, and outlines criteria which will prematurely remove Endangered Species Act protections from the wolf.
Already plagued by mismanagement, poaching, and declining genetic diversity, the Mexican wolf needs your help more than ever. We only have until the close of the comment period on August 29th to generate opposition to this flawed plan. Please submit your comment today to ask the US Fish and Wildlife Service to draft a recovery plan that’s based on science, not politics!
Thank you for your commitment to wildlife and wild places.

Of course I wrote in support of the Lobo! And was delighted to notice that Action Network had set a goal of 3,200 letters and, as of yesterday morning, only a further 275 letters were needed to make that goal.
Please, dear reader, add your name. Thank you!
Have a wonderful weekend!
