Why do these wolves need our advocacy? 

The US Fish and Wildlife Service recently published their draft recovery plan for the lobo and while we expected it to be seriously flawed it's even worse. The draft plan caps the number of wolves in the US at a number much lower than what unaffiliated scientists recommend, allows delisting when they may still be in serious jeopardy, restricts them south of I-40, and asks Mexico to do much of the work despite serious problems with connectivity, habitat, support, and poaching enforcement. And perhaps worst of all, it gives the states the power to manage the program--the very states who have done everything in their power to sink it!
