North Carolina Red Wolves In Danger -- Take Action!

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is making a serious mistake. By allowing residents to hunt coyotes at night using spotlights, they have placed the area's red wolves — the only wild red wolf population in existence and one of the world's most endangered animals — in grave peril.

Red wolves and coyotes appear very similar, even in daylight. In nighttime conditions, it is nearly impossible to tell the animals apart. At least two red wolves have already been illegally shot because of this mistake.

There are now only about 100 red wolves left in the wild. With such a small population, each individual is vital to the survival of the species. The Wildlife Resources Commission needs to stop all coyote hunting immediately!

Take action!
