Sorry for the Red Dawn quote, when I saw this I could'nt resist.... From Defenders of Wildlife:
The Bush/Cheney administration has spurned the wolverine again, defying scientific evidence and refusing to list this rare creature under the Endangered Species Act.
New scientific evidence reported by Defenders of Wildlife documents the wolverine's uncertain future, raising concerns about the effects of global warming and continued trapping of this elusive carnivore.
But despite the growing body of scientific evidence, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released a court-ordered decision declaring for the second time that it will do nothing to assist this rare creature -- leaving the wolverine in desperate straits.
We need to let the Bush/Cheney administration know that we strongly believe wolverines and their habitat need federal protection, before it's too late.

From Defenders Of Wildlife and Care2.com:
In the wake of the federal delisting of wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies, Defenders of Wildlife and our allies have filed a formal petition with the Fish and Wildlife Service calling for a national wolf recovery plan.
Such a plan would help ensure a lasting future for wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies and provide a needed boost for wolf recovery and management efforts in the Southwest, Northeast and Pacific Northwest.
Help support this forward-looking effort to protect the gray wolf's important part in America. Sign our petition to send your personalized comments to Dale Hall, head of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Defenders just launched a new blog to give people a place to talk about the federal government's decision to remove Endangered Species protections for wolves in the Greater Yellowstone region.
You'll hear up-to-the-minute news from our staff on the ground in Idaho and Montana and from special guests.
