Can our last wild red wolves be saved?

February 27, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Fewer than 100 red wolves remain in the wild.

And if we don’t act soon they will continue to be shot and killed.

It’s why we’re in court, fighting with all we’ve got. And it’s why I need your help today!

Your urgent donation will help Defenders save the red wolf, and protect other imperiled species.

In the past year alone, 14 red wolves have met untimely deaths in the North Carolina woodlands where they are making their last stand. The most recent victim – a radio-collared wolf found shot to death only last month – is the seventh to die from bullet wounds.

And the bloodshed could escalate dramatically if North Carolina state officials continue to permit hunting for coyotes in red wolves’ tiny habitat – including hunting with spotlights at night. Smaller than gray wolves, these wolves are barely larger than coyotes, and share coyotes’ coloring.

It’s hard to distinguish between a coyote and a red wolf under ideal conditions. At night, it’s all but impossible.

Defenders’ legal team is fighting to stop coyote hunting in red wolf territory. A legal ruling is expected in the coming months.

For nearly 67 years, Defenders of Wildlife has been America’s leading force for protecting wolves and other endangered wildlife.

We are only as strong as our supporters – people just like you.

America’s red wolves are making their last stand. Won’t you stand with them?
