Subject: Save America's Wolves

Dear Friend of America's Wildlife,

Our nation's wolves are in serious danger and I need your help to save them.

I'm a long-time supporter of Defenders of Wildlife and for the past ten years I've taken time from my acting career to serve on its Board of Directors. I do this because I personally want to save America's wild animals -- especially the magnificent gray wolf, our greatest surviving symbol of wildness. I was proud to be part of Defenders when it helped reintroduce wolves to Yellowstone and central Idaho in 1995 and 1996, and to Arizona in 1998.

But powerful special interests now are working to eliminate the wolf's protections under the Endangered Species Act and, as a result, many wolves may die. This could be particularly true for wolves in much of the Northern Rockies and Great Lakes region.

I need your help today to produce a million signatures on a petition to Interior Secretary Gale Norton before she proposes reducing or eliminating federal protection for America's wolves. Please click here to sign this important petition and then forward it to your friends.

Please don't let the special interests turn back the clock on one of our country's greatest conservation achievements -- rescuing the gray wolf from extinction. Working together we can save America's wolves.

Thanks for helping save something wild!

Ed Asner

P.S. After signing the petition, please forward this message to your friends so we can quickly get a million signatures on our petition to Secretary Norton. If you want to know more about America's wolves and Defenders' efforts to save them, go to
