We need your help. Next week in Albuquerque, a public comment hearing is being held by US Fish & Wildlife Service regarding the future of wolves in New Mexico. The last hearing in Washington D.C. was filled with wolf-proliferation advocates who opposed protections for wild game. Let’s make sure EVERYONE attends this hearing.

Remember, new aggressive plans are asking for aggressive expansion of wolf populations in New Mexico. Without wolf-delisting, important safeguards to protect hunting, livestock and wild game in New Mexico will not be available. Considering the impacts experienced in other states, the future of hunting and wild game depend on your support.

Here is a map illustrating these new wolf proliferation plans: http://www.defenders.org/publications/places-for-wolves-southwest-defenders.pdf

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published two proposed rules under the Endangered Species Act on 6/13/2013; one to delist the gray wolf in the contiguous U.S. but to maintain the Mexican wolf as a listed species and the other to revise the Nonessential Experimental Population of the Mexican Wolf.

The Service rescheduled three public hearings as a result of delays caused by the Federal Government lapse in appropriations. We will hold four public hearings on the proposals: 11/19/2013 from 6 pm to 8:30 pm in Denver, CO; 11/20/2013 from 6 pm to 9:00 pm in Albuquerque, NM; 11/22/2013 from 6 pm to 8:30 pm in Sacramento, CA.

In addition, on 12/3/2013, we will hold a public information meeting, principally on the Mexican wolf proposal, from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm, at the Hon-Dah Conference Center, 777 Highway 260, Pinetop, AZ (3 miles outside of Pinetop at the Junction of Hwy 260 and Hwy 73). A public hearing (for the recording of comments) will be held from 6 pm to 8:30 pm.

To learn more about the proposed rules, view the Federal Register notice with the details of the public hearings, and for links to submit comments to the public record, visit www.fws.gov/home/wolfrecovery. Written comments on our proposals will be accepted through 12/17/2013.
