UPDATE: Success! County authorities listened to the thousands urging them to keep Wolf Mountain Sanctuary open. Thank you to everyone who signed!
Wolf Mountain Sanctuary rescues wolves and fosters them in a sanctuary in Southern California, as well as educating visitors about the plight of this threatened species. However, local officials recently shut down Wolf Mountain Sanctuary and demanded that the sanctuary repermit, a process this nonprofit organization cannot afford.
Even though Wolf Mountain Sanctuary complied with all regulations and held an Exhibitor License since 1987, the County of San Bernardino will not allow the organization to continue its work until it files paperwork to receive a new Exhibitor License. The sanctuary does not have the resources to repeatedly file paperwork and pay the accompanying exorbitant fees. And it shouldn't have to.
The work of Wolf Mountain Sanctuary is too valuable and unique to be abandoned with so little cause. Urge the County of San Bernardino to allow them to continue protecting wolves from extinction

|Thanks to your efforts, counties surrounding Florida's Indian River Lagoon initiated a ban on the toxic fertilizers poisoning the lagoon's dolphins. But a new state bill could block the counties' fertilizer regulations. |
Florida senators will vote on this bill Monday, February 28. Speak out today! »
This bill would force counties to adopt state-wide fertilizer regulations -- which don't go far enough to save the Indian River Lagoon dolphins.
Help urge Florida senators to vote NO. »
The Indian River Lagoon's dolphins are found diseased and emaciated, with brain lesions and skin-eating fungal infections from the poisons they must swim in.
Don't let Florida state legislature undo our efforts to save these dolphins! Tell Florida senators to vote "no" on this bill and allow counties to set their own fertilizer regulations. »

|Hi everyone, |
Thanks to pressure from local and national wildlife groups, Unified Area Command (UAC) in charge of the oil disaster response will now protect the Gulf's endangered sea turtles from burning and skimming clean-up operations.
But UAC needs to do more to protect the wildlife threatened by the massive BP oil spill »
Protecting the sea turtles is a great first step, but we must ensure proper monitoring, reporting and appropriate intervention to protect Gulf wildlife in harm's way.
In fact, we still have no idea how many animals have been killed or injured in the spill and clean-up efforts because there is no public reporting of wildlife casualties. With millions of migratory birds headed straight for the oiled Gulf shores, we can't afford to wait.
The victory for sea turtles shows that the UAC will listen to our concerns about wildlife. We just need to speak up.
Add your voice. Tell the UAC to publicly report all wildlife casualties »

Pass H.R.5643: Prevent Unintended Death of Wildlife, Pets and People
Sponsored by: Care2.com
H.R. 5643 would prohibit the use, production, sale, importation, and exportation of Compound 1080 and the use of sodium cyanide.
These two poisons, ranked Level 1 by the EPA for their high degree of acute toxicity, are used by Wildlife Services. Though intended to protect livestock from native predators like coyote, Compound 1080 and sodium cyanide are indiscriminate killers, and other wildlife (including endangered species), pets and people often fall victim.
In 2007, Wildlife Services admitted that it had internal issues with safely handling hazardous chemicals. Protect wildlife, pets, and people from unintentional and agonizing death by telling Congress to support H.R. 5643.
