Since 2012, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has killed 34 endangered wolves—the vast majority on public lands and on behalf of the same corporate livestock operation. Last fall, Gov. Inslee called WDFW’s wolf-killing "unacceptable" and directed the agency to emphasize nonlethal measures. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened. That's why in May, Guardians petitioned the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission to adopt regulations requiring WDFW and livestock operators to better deter and manage conflicts.
Sadly, the Commission rejected our petition. We’ve appealed to Gov. Inslee, but now need your help to provide a better future for wolves. We urge you to personalize this message, so please take a moment include why this issue is important to you.
