Speak out for gray wolves

There's still time to help gray wolves! The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has proposed removing the gray wolf from the list of species that receive federal protection under the Endangered Species Act. But, in response to public pressure, FWS is holding a series of public hearings in Denver, CO, Sacramento, CA, Albuquerque, NM, and Pinetop, AZ. Make your voice heard if you live nearby! FWS has also extended the public comment period until December 17. Submit a comment to tell FWS why the vulnerable gray wolf must continue to receive protection under the Endangered Species Act.

Hyena update from Ethiopian Wildlife Center

Three hyenas are settling into their new lives at Born Free's wildlife center, Ensessakotteh, in Ethiopia. Rescuing the center's first-ever hyenas—Matama, Tigeste, and Uwerr—has been rewarding, but challenging. Matama spends his time socializing with his best friend, Nolan: a large dog who lives at the center. Tigeste was nervous upon arrival, but has relaxed a bit. We fear that Uwerr, however, may be blind—and we eagerly await our upcoming visit with an eye doctor. Despite adjustments and obstacles, we'll continue to do everything in our power to improve these hyenas' lives. Read our Ethiopia country director's full update on their developments here.
