Campaign for Swedish Wolves: Save the Swedish wolf population from decimating reductions (Petition)

Recently on October 19th of this year, the Swedish Minister of the Environment and Spatial Planning had proposed that the Swedish wolf population should be reduced to only 180 individuals.

This would be a reduction of the wolf population of about 40 per cent. Her decision was made despite all the scientific research reports on the topic, including the Swedish government's own investigation earlier this year.

The Minister's decision is in direct violation with the government's own agenda to improve the genetic status of the wolf population. It also goes against the Habitat Directive’s rules on a favorable conservation status.

The government's own investigation in April of 2012 had proposed an increase of the wolf population to 450 individuals.

Conservation organizations WWF Sweden, the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation and the Swedish Carnivore Association all agree that a decimation of the population would seriously endanger the population.

Major areas of concern are a higher vulnerability to diseases, poaching, traffic accidents, nativity variation and other random events.

The decision was kept secret from the organizations mentioned above as well as the Swedish Wolf Committee. They only became aware of it when the public announcement was made by the Swedish Environment Minister, Lena Ek. The consensus of these organizations is for the Minister to reconsider and heed the scientific reports on the future well-being of the Swedish wolf population.

Please take a minute to sign the petition below. 

Save the Swedish wolves!

    Leave the wolves alone. They are living the life God intended them to live. What would you say if the wolves wanted to reduce 40% of you humans? They had the territory first, not you!! You are pushing them out of their home. Before you decide anything else, ASK GOD WHAT HE THINKS. These wolves are Gods children too.

  6. Look into the eyes of a wolf... and see your soul...... they deserve to life as so does every other living creature/human on this planet.....If we stopped to really take a closer look at a wolf and how he and his pack live... we can possibly learn so much more about what life is really about s a v e t h e w o l f <3 ~kyst

  7. Just leave the WOLF alone.
    Be grateful for his help in building Mankind.

    Leave the wolves alone! They have not bothered anyone. Dogs attack and kill more people than other animals. Yet I don't see a calling for their extinction. You cannot mandate who lives or dies.
