1. Keep Fox Mountain Alpha Female Wolf in the Wild 

Outcry from the public over USFWS plans to kill the Fox Mountain Pack's alpha female have kept her alive, but plans to capture her and keep her in captivity are still in place. She hasn't been captured yet, and Mexicanwolves.org is urging people to help keep up the pressure and urge officials to leave her in the wild with her pack.

2. Stop the Legalization of Ivory Sales

A recent proposal from CITES to legalize the sale of ivory stockpiles has sparked some serious debate. Opponents believe legalizing sales will only increase the demand for ivory and make elephants more vulnerable to poaching. 

Please send a letter to U.S. officials asking them not to support the legalization of ivory sales. 


3. Ask the DoT to Require Reports for All Incidents Involving Animals

The Department of Transportation (DoT) has published a proposal that would expand reporting requirements for airlines that ship animals to help improve safety and humane handling for animal passengers and help people decide which airlines to use if they’re traveling with an animal companion.

As it stands, airlines are only required to report incidents ranging from lost pets and injuries to deaths for animals that are being kept as household pets in the U.S. The new proposal would include pets and commercial shipments, but excludes other animals, such as primates being shipped for research. 

Please submit a comment before August 28 asking the DoT to amend its proposal and require airlines to file a report for the total number of animals transported and for any animal that is lost, injured or killed regardless of their species or whether they are a pet or commercial shipment.
