We just had a huge victory for Idaho wolves!
Thanks to the support of people like you, Earthjustice went to court to stop Idaho from exterminating the Golden and Monumental wolf packs in central Idaho’s Frank Church—River of No Return Wilderness.
And we won! The Idaho Department of Fish and Game announced that it is halting its wolf extermination program as of today.
This will stop the wolf killings and restore the natural balance between predator and prey in the Idaho wilderness area.
This fight in Idaho is just the latest battle in our efforts to protect wolves across the country. Our work is far from over.
We are still fighting to stop the brutal wolf killings in Wyoming, oppose the elimination of Endangered Species Act protections for wolves across nearly the entire United States, and secure laws governing wolf management that will ensure real wolf recovery.
And none of this work is possible without you!
Thank you for continuing to stand by us as we fight to protect our wildlife and our wildlands.
Make an emergency gift to help us continue to fight back using the most powerful tool available—the law. We can’t win without you.

This is good news. However, Idaho and its govenor are continuing to try and eliminate the state’s population to 150.

A great sorrow, and one that I am only beginning to understand: we don’t get to choose our own hearts. We can’t make ourselves want what’s good for us or what’s good for other people. We don’t get to choose the people we are (…) 

How do we know what’s right for us? Every shrink, every career counselor, every Disney princess knows the answer: “Be yourself.” “Follow your heart.”     Only here’s what I really, really want someone to explain to me. What if one happens to be possessed of a heart that can’t be trusted—?

Yes but how does one do the flirting, I cry plaintively into the careless wind.
