Protect Critically Imperiled Wolverines From Extinction Due to Climate Change

Target: Aurelia Skipwith, Director of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: List wolverine as threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) made the decision to deny much-needed endangered species act protections to wolverine, whose populations are severely threatened by climate change. There are only about 300 left in the contiguous United States.

Wolverine rely on a high elevation habitat and deep snow. Their populations are increasingly imperiled by climate change, habitat loss and trapping. Conservation groups have been petitioning for greater protections for the species since 2000. Finally, in 2016 a federal judge sided with the Western Environmental Law Center against a USFWS decision to deny ESA protections, saying “No greater level of certainty is needed to see the writing on the wall for this snow-dependent species standing squarely in the path of global climate change.”

Regardless, USFWS continues to deny protections for the imperiled wolverine. Sign below to demand that they list this valuable animal under the Endangered Species Act.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Skipwith,

The USFWS originally identified climate change as the primary threat to wolverine, and this was backed up by peer-reviewed research and the larger scientific community. Yet, despite years of evidence showing that this species could be nearing extinction, you continue to deny it greater protections.

I demand that you listen to science and include the wolverine under the Endangered Species Act.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
