Defenders of Wildlife

These adorable wolf pups will be featured on our next calendar and seen in more than 1 million homes, offices, classrooms, break rooms and other public areas. The calendar will serve as a powerful reminder to people all across America of the importance of protecting wolves and other amazing animals. Thank you!

Make sure you get your Defenders of Wildlife calendar. Join Defenders of Wildlife today!

In the last three weeks alone, donations from caring people like you have enabled Defenders of Wildlife to…

*Launch emergency legal efforts in state court to stop Governor Sarah Palin’s helicopter assault on wolves near the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve, near the area made famous by the 1890s Alaska Gold Rush. In just five days her hired gunmen killed 84 wolves. Ironically, the state ended its helicopter attacks just one day after we went to court.

*Mobilize wildlife supporters to stop a senseless slaughter of Yellowstone’s famous wild bison. Defenders activists in Montana helped stop a bill in the state legislature that would have consigned more than 100 wild bison to their deaths.

*Fight reckless fishing practices that kill threatened and endangered sea turtles. Contributions from concerned people like you helped us generate almost 50,000 comments to the National Marine Fisheries Service against deadly bottom longline fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.

… And that’s just a few of the efforts made possible by caring people like you. Please join Defenders of Wildlife today and help us make a difference for wolves and other wildlife.
