STOP Bobcat and Wolf Fur Export!

President Obama,

We urge you to publicly review the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s export program, which facilitates the export of thousands of bobcat and wolf pelts each year, and continues to operate without environmental oversight. To date, the Service has refused to carefully consider the environmental impacts of not only the bobcat and wolf pelt export, but the effect on other species that are also caught and killed in traps.

Why is this important?

Under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regulates the export of animal pelts. The Service has illegally failed to evaluate the export program, resulting in the trapping and killing of native and endangered species.
Western Environmental Law Center is a nonprofit, environmental law firm whose expert attorneys are dedicated to defending the wildlife of the American West. WELC attorneys filed suit against U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in May.
