Rally, Panel & Community-Led Hearing on Federal Wolf Protections
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Headquarters
911 NE 11th Avenue
Portland, OR 97215
Date and time:
May 6, 2019 at 5 p.m.
The Trump administration has announced plans to remove all remaining federal protections for gray wolves throughout the lower 48 states. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is required to conduct public hearings on the gray wolf delisting, but it has failed to do so.
That's why the Center for Biological Diversity, Defenders of Wildlife, the NRDC, Cascadia Wildlands, and Humane Society US will be hosting a rally, banner hang, wolf expert panel, and public hearing to gather your comments on the issue and let your voice be heard.
All public comments will be recorded, transcribed, and submitted as a formal comment to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Join us as we unite to stand up to the Trump administration and protect our wolves!
Please contact Stephanie Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
