I wanted to make sure you saw my recent email on the new threats to Alaska's wildlife.

The Trump administration recently greenlit a slew of deadly anti-wildlife proposals, including some that would allow sport hunters to kill black bears and cubs and wolves and pups in their dens.

Defenders is exploring all options to halt this barbaric assault – including going to court – but up against the Trump administration, we need your help to win!

Please fight back against these inhumane attacks on Alaska's wolves, bears and other wildlife with your gift today!

There’s no getting around it. This has been a bad week for wildlife in Alaska.

The Trump administration announced plans to finalize a rule that will allow a range of cruel and barbaric hunting methods on national preserve lands in Alaska. We expect that this regulation will allow sport hunters to bait, trap and snare bears, and kill black bears and cubs and wolves and pups in their dens. It would also permit the killing of defenseless caribou from boats as they swim across rivers in national preserves.

This, Patrick, is nothing short of an all-out war on wildlife.

Your urgent donation to Defenders of Wildlife puts you at the forefront of the fight to save the wildlife you love – before it’s too late.

To make matters worse, the administration also announced a plan to abandon existing federal hunting regulations for brown bears on the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. This reversal would allow hunters to kill brown bears at bait stations, an activity never before permitted on the refuge.

In both cases, the federal government is turning its back on bears, wolves and other vulnerable wildlife and leaving these animals subject to aggressive state hunting regulations designed to reduce predator populations. If they’re not stopped, they’ll set deadly precedents for other states to follow.

Allowing the killing of bear cubs and wolf pups in their dens is barbaric and inhumane. Defenders is exploring all options to halt this deadly assault on wildlife - including going to court - to stop these appalling actions.
