You might wonder why, with all the bad wolf news coming from the Northern Rockies lately, I remain optimistic.
I remain optimistic, because not all the news is bad. In Wyoming, this would have been the end of the first week of the wolf hunting season. But thanks to your support, we went to court, and Wyoming’s wolves are back on the endangered species list – where they belong.
I remain optimistic, because not all states are dominated by wolf-haters. Just last week, the California Fish and Game Commission officially added gray wolves to the state endangered species list. That means the welcome mat is out for wolves in some great wolf habitat in the Lower 48!
I remain optimistic, because if you look at the big picture, we’re winning. Just 20 years ago the wolf population of the Northern Rockies was almost zero. Today, there are more than 1,600 wolves roaming the forests, mountains, and valleys of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. And while old hatreds and prejudices die hard, a new generation of Westerners, many of whom are wolf-lovers like you and me, is coming of age.
Most of all I remain optimistic, because of you. Supporters like you are the lifeblood of our work. It’s no exaggeration to say that without you, we wouldn’t be here.
Some things are worth saying as often as possible. Here’s one – Thank You.
We will never give up fighting for the wolves, and we are so proud to have you by our side.
