The beautiful wolf continues to be misunderstood and persecuted around the world. Governments, hunter associations and legislators have all joined together in various countries to set up wolf culling hunts. In the U.S., legislation has been introduced in Congress again to remove the wolf from it's protected status under the Endangered Species Act.

We must become the loud and outspoken voices of the wolves who cannot speak for themself against this cruelty. Listed below are current petitions in the wolf hotspots of the world. Please take a minute to sign and share with others. Thank you.

European Wolf Petitons

~ Les Loups en France

Le loup est une espèce menacée en Europe (moins de 10 000 individus). Aussi, Canis lupus est strictement protégé par la Directive Habitat et la Convention de Berne.Signataire de ces protocoles européens, la France s ‘est donc engagée à assurer sa protection intégrale. Mais sur le terrain, le braconnage et les tirs officiels accordés à titre dérogatoire par l'Etat mettent les populations en péril.

  1. does not our fatally flawed species, homo sapiens, not realize that all lives are intertwined, and to destroy one is to destroy oneself in the process????

    man leaves his muddy footprints
    wherever he treads
    and now our earth shudders,
    and we live, in dread
    what is next for our world
    what more damage can be done
    is this what our species
    considers to be fun
    in its rampant need to conquer
    and own
    man has destroyed his refuge,
    his home
    what will be left
    i ask, bereft

    Wolves are natures clean up crew of the very ill. They do not kill live stock that are healthy. Stop the slaughter now! Yellow Stone National Park regretted killing off the wolves. Now they have to re populate them because of disease with the other wildlife running rampant with no predator. I use to track wolves on horse back for years in Alberta believe me they very seldom attack healthy animals.

    Vargar är naturens städa upp besättningen. De går bara efter ohälsosamma djur. Yellow Stone National Park utgå rasen år sedan och nu måste återbefolka eftersom sjukdom härjar i andra djur på grund av över befolkningen och inga rovdjur för att rensa ut besättningarna.
    Ungefär som i städerna prärievargar bli av med dem så har du en över befolkningen i gnagare. Dessa rovdjur är nödvändiga balansen i naturen.

    These beautiful and loving animals are persecuted everywhere, why can't someone stop it???? Surely someone somewhere in authority has a conscience about these wicked killings, more often for sport.And yes they do serve a good purpose in the nature circle of life. I just get sickened to my stomach reading about it, and feel so helpless. Babs McColl.

    Wolves are a sacred creatures and have existed longer than man, we are their visitors not they ours. It is appauling the harm the human race wants to bring to such amazing creatures.

    Protect them and let the wolves eat anyone who seeks to intentional harm them.

  12. I am a true believer that our wolves must stay alive. They have from the beginning of time taught my people survival. Wolves are very loving, loyal beings that have the right to feel our Mother, the earth, under their feet for all time, The human family, have no right to kill my wolves for any reason, they have guided us and continue to guide us. Many Blessings ....gageyui, Mali

  14. I was named 'Little Wolf' as a child. When I turned 18, my AI name changed to 'Big Wolf', plus Wolf is my middle name as well. But I had to learn who 'Wolf' was in me. Wolf is my Animal guide, I grew to know him, once I let him in my life and respected him & loved him...He has shown me wonderful lessons and beautiful teachings in life. Now I want to help His Packs stay alive. I respect the Wolf. He has my back, I want to have his...somehow, anyway that I can help, & when i just can't...i grieve, with them, as they howl. Wolf is my Friend.

    for those hunters out there who are against this..Boo to you..your just showing us how ignorant you are..if you respect wildlife as a hunter you would not be doing this..however what you are showing us is you care more for the big Trophies,and the almighty dollar that goes with it..if one hunts to feed a family they don't brag about it,they take it home and do just that,they respect the animal they have taken,they respect all wildlife and co-exist with it..what you are saying is you have no respect for anything and you think you own nature as well YOU DON"T..if you want your 15 minutes of fame go into target competitions then..earn a metal trophy me that has more value of self worth then a dead head hanging on a wall..our voices will be heard and hopefully drown yours me you sound more like a bunch of whiny kids because there is competition and you can't handle it, who kills to survive and who struggles each day to do so,while you sit in your warm house,with food on the table,who work,and can buy what you want..try putting yourselves in their footsteps because i bet most of you can't..
