Be a voice for Mexican wolves

Wolves need you to speak out at public hearings to save them from extinction.

The Fish and Wildlife Service will soon be releasing the Draft Environmental Impact statement for new rule changes that will determine the future of our Lobos. There are only 83 wolves in the wild in New Mexico and Arizona, and the proposed rules will likely have provisions that make it easier to kill them and dim their chances for recovery. There should be some good provisions too that need to be supported.

There will be two public hearings about the Environmental Impact Statement, and both are in places where wolves need all the friends they can get. The first will be Aug. 11 in Pinetop, Ariz., near the New Mexico border, and the second will be Aug. 13 in Truth or Consequences. Sign up here to carpool:

Arizona hearing: 6-9 p.m. Aug. 11
Hon-Dah Conference, 777 Highway 260, near Pinetop, AZ, (3 miles outside of Pinetop at the junction of Hwy 260 and Hwy 73

New Mexico hearing: 6-9 p.m. Aug. 13
Truth or Consequences Civic/Convention Center, 400 W. 4th St, Truth or Consequences, NM

A critical mass of supporters could turn the tide for Mexican wolves. Please save the date, spread the word, and bring a friend! Contact Mary Katherine Ray at if you'd like to sign up for updates on Fish and Wildlife's rule changes for Mexican wolves.

Thank you!
