Over 28,000 Voices Strong in the Fight for Wolves
Wildlife advocates ramp up the pressure to stop the dangerous Keystone XL pipeline.
Thanks to wildlife advocates like you, more than 28,000 comments have been generated to Congress in just the past month--urging them to do the right thing for wolves by rejecting legislation that would fast-track the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline.
In addition, generous donations by National Wildlife Federation Action Fund supporters have enabled us to ramp up advocacy work in districts around the country and in the halls of Congress--by running targeted ads, holding press conferences, generating thousands of phone calls, and flying in constituents from across the country to meet with their members of Congress in-person.
These efforts have been crucial in keeping up the momentum to stop the Keystone XL pipeline--a massive project that would expand the tar sands operations that are pushing woodland caribou to the brink of extinction and prompting plans to poison and shoot thousands of wolves in a cruel effort to "protect" the caribou.
Already, 500 wolves have been cruelly killed this way in nearby developed areas, and we if we don't fight back, 6,000 more may face the same fate in the tar sands area.
And wolves aren't the only victims of this war on wildlife. Dogs, raptors, cougars, wolverines and eagles that eat the strychnine baits, or feed on the poisoned carcasses, are also facing the same cruel death.
The U.S. Senate rejected a bill earlier this year that would have overruled President Obama's rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline and expedited its approval. Now, you're helping defend this victory by keeping the pressure on Congress to stop boosting Big Oil's profits at the expense of wildlife.
With your voices, we can stop these cruel killings and ensure wolves and many more wildlife can thrive for years to come.
