The Grand Canyon region in northern Arizona and southern Utah has been identified by science as necessary for Mexican wolf recovery. Science also shows that wolves are important for restoring the ecological health of our wildlands.
But current reintroduction rules do not allow Mexican gray wolves to live north of I-40.
Please call or send an email to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Regional Director Benjamin Tuggle and Mexican Wolf Recovery Coordinator Sherry Barrett, and ask them to restore and protect wolves in the Grand Canyon region today.

Dear Benjamin Tuggle and Sherry Barrett,
As a resident of Arizona, I want wolves restored in my state, including in the Grand Canyon region north of I-40.
Please use your role to ensure the best available science is used in Mexican wolf recovery planning.
The rules that keep Mexican gray wolves from living north of I-40 contradict the best available science on recovery and cheat us of the ecological benefits of restoring wolves in this important region.
Wolves have been missing from most of Arizona and from Utah for too long. Please do everything necessary to restore them to the essential natural role in these states and throughout the Southwest.
You can email and call them with this message:
Thank you for speaking out for wolves today!
