Our efforts to restore critically imperiled Mexican wolves
to the southwest are headed to the courtroom, and we invite you to be a part of
the action. On April 26, a federal judge will hear our case challenging the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s 2015 Mexican wolf rule at the U.S. District Court
of Arizona in Tucson.
Join Guardians’ Carnivore Advocate Kelly Nokes in supporting
our Senior Attorney Sarah McMillan and attorneys from the Western Environmental
Law Center as they argue for increased protections for Mexican wolves.
With only 113 lobos remaining in the wild, it is essential
that the federal government use its full authority under the Endangered Species
Act to recover the species to the wild.
As this is a formal court hearing, please RSVP to Carol Norton, Guardians’ Associate Director for more information if you would like to
When and Where:
Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 1:30-5:00
U.S. District Court of Arizona
Congress Street, Courtroom 5B
85701 (see map)
Even if you cannot attend the hearing, join us for a post
hearing gathering to debrief. RSVP here for details.
With your support, we are ensuring that Mexican wolves have
the best possible protections and that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is
carrying out its duties to restore lobos to their native southwestern homelands.
For the wild,
Wildlife Program Director
