The War On Wolves

Public Hearings

DC Wolf Rally, © Defenders of WildlifePublic hearings on the proposal to remove Endangered Species Act protection for most gray wolves in the U.S. were scheduled after the original announcement. Though the government shutdown caused many of these events to be postponed at the last minute, Defenders was there at each location to hold a rally or citizens hearing, and to provide training on how to testify so that when the hearings were rescheduled, pro-wolf voices would be heard. Once the hearings were rescheduled, we worked to provide the same opportunities for wolf supporters to rally together and receive training.
