TAKE ACTION TODAY!!!!
Did you see this? The state of Alaska’s indiscriminate killing
has cut short years of valuable wolf research!
Will you help us protect imperiled wildlife?
Thank you for your urgent and compassionate donation.
Help us protect predators in Alaska and imperiled wildlife nationwide.
Dear pbnb reader,
An entire wolf pack killed. Years of research cut short.
Alaska’s campaign of brutal and indiscriminate killing of
wolves, bears and other predators is so intense that National Park
Service scientists are abandoning a 23-year old study of wolf behavior
because so many of their study animals have been killed.
This cannot stand. Your urgent donation will help us protect predators
in Alaska and imperiled wildlife nationwide.
Since 2005, Alaska has been killing predators using a range of
outrageous tactics including aerial gunning, killing mother wolves and

and then lead shooters back to their doomed packs.
John, the U.S. Fish and

Alaska will continue to pull out all the stops to block these crucial

practices have friends on Capitol Hill. In fact, legislative proposals
to nullify this new rule have already passed the full U.S. House of
Defenders worked hard to help establish these regulations, and now, we
are working even harder to stop Congress from blocking them.
These are desperate times for the wildlife you and I love. Together,
we can turn back these appalling attacks and protect imperiled animals
wherever they are threatened. We can do it, but only with the help of
people who care…people like you.
Please donate today.
Thank you for all you do!
