Wolves Under Aerial Attack

More bad news from our staff in Alaska.

At least 100 wolves have been killed under Alaska's deadly aerial gunning program. Trophy hunters can gun down wolves from airplanes and helicopters or run the helpless wolves to exhaustion, then land and shoot them.

And now the Alaska Board of Game has expanded the program -- meaning even more wolves will be slaughtered.

We need to generate more pressure on Alaska Governor Murkowski by educating and mobilizing more Americans to stop this awful killing. Click below to see an ad we're starting to run in newspapers

Time is of the essence. We must act now to bring an end to the aerial gunning of wolves.

If everyone who cares about wolves and wildlife speaks up, we can end this barbaric practice and save Alaska's wolves.

Thank you for caring,

P.S. Thanks to caring members like you, we generated over 10,000 faxes to the Alaska Board of Game and were able to stop them from rescinding the vital wolf buffer zone around Denali National Park by a narrow margin of 4-3.
