Together, we can protect Alaska’s wildlife

An amendment to a federal bill could put grizzly bears, wolves, lynx and other wildlife on over 96 million acres of taxpayer-funded land at risk.

Amendment #11 to the House Interior Appropriations bill would block professional scientists from finalizing rules aimed at protecting animals from the most inhumane and unsporting hunting methods on National Wildlife Refuges and National Park Service lands in Alaska. The amendment would clear the way for spotting and chasing grizzly bears from planes and then shooting them and also allowing people to go into wolf dens and shoot pups on national wildlife refuges and national parks — activities inconceivable anywhere, but especially on the most important federally protected lands.

Please make a quick call to the office of Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler at (202) 225-3536 right away and urge opposition to this dangerous amendment. You can simply say, “As a constituent, I am urging my representative to please protect Alaska’s wildlife by opposing Representative Don Young’s amendment #11 to the House Interior Appropriations bill.”

Jim, Alaska is home to some of the most beautiful wild places and species in America — we need to stand together to protect it. After you call, please send a quick follow-up message.
