Stop the Canadian government from slaughtering wolves! sign now

We, the undersigned, are calling on the Canadian Ministor of Environment, Peter Kent, to stop the proposed plan of slaughtering thousands of wolves in areas near tar sands mining. 

Samuel Wasser, director of the Center for Conservation Biology at the University of Washington said that mining oil from tar sands is a greater threat to caribou than wolf predation. Wasser found that in winter, when food sources for caribou are thin, the animals rely on lichen. Unfortunately, that’s the time of year when oil production activity is at its height. Additionally, oil extracting operations take place in the same open, frozen areas that caribou use. The noise of the industrial commotion stresses the caribou.

We believe the tar sands oil mining is the real threat to the caribou population because of it's negative effect on caribou habitat. Without a healthy habitat, the endangerment of caribou is unavoidable, no matter how many wolves are murdered. Within a healthy ecosystem, these two animals create a natural balance.

We, the undersigned, are calling on the Canadian government to take responsibility and step in to stop Canadian oil producers from undermining the habitat of the caribou so they can survive rather than killing off wolves and other predators.
