     Please phone WI's US Senator Tammy Baldwin at (202) 224-5653 and urge her to keep wolves protected in Wisconsin! Sen. Baldwin is at this moment "calling on Congressional leadership and my colleagues in the United States Senate to pass legislation to delist the wolf and return management to the state by the end of this year." (Read Sen. Baldwin's 11/18/16 article "Washington should act on Wisconsin’s wolf problem" here.)

     All you need to say is, "Please keep wolves protected in Wisconsin; please do NOT remove federal protections for wolves." The message will be noted by Senator Baldwin's staff and relayed to her.

     Be prepared to give your name, address, and phone number. Please, ALWAYS be polite and respectful. Name-calling, and rude or abusive calls will hurt, rather than help, our cause.

     If you, like many of us, are hesitant about calling because you don't know what to expect, there is a very good article called "Shy Person's Guide to Calling Representatives" -- you can read it here!

     The simple message above is enough, but if you want to add to it, here are some key talking points you might share:

  • Removing federal protections for wolves is premature, as wolves have barely recovered to their historic range in the Great Lakes and elsewhere.

  • On top of that, they face numerous threats including habitat loss, disease, and poaching.

  • Here in Wisconsin, aggressive trophy hunters use exceptionally cruel methods, including hounding. Tracking and trailing wolves with hounds leads to potentially disastrous encounters, and is in our opinion no more than legalized dog- fighting.

  • Remind Senator Baldwin that the majority of Wisconsinites want wolves protected and ask her to stay strong in protecting them.

     Ask Sen. Baldwin NOT to delist wolves through Congressional intervention - science not politics should dictate wildlife management.
