Come to a rally in Las Cruces this Wednesday at noon
Congressman Steve Pearce (R-NM) has introduced a bill that would strip Mexican gray wolves of protection under the federal Endangered Species Act and turn management of wolves over to the states. This bill, disingenuously named the “Wolf Transparency and Accountability Act,” would essentially be a death sentence for wolves, since there are only about 109 left in the wild and the last time the states were in charge Mexican wolves went extinct in the U.S.
Please join us for a rally outside Rep. Pearce’s office to show him that we love wolves and want them to roam the Southwest’s wildlands.
Where: U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce’s office, 570 N. Telshor, Las Cruces, NM
When: 12-1 p.m., Wednesday, July 15
Bring: Your enthusiasm for Lobos, a sign, and if you wish an umbrella for shade. Water will be provided. (A sign-making party will be held at the Southwest Environmental Center on Monday, July 13 from 6-8 PM).
