I just got this in my email box and I thought it was important enough to pass on to all of our readers!
Big Action Alert today. We need your help to return wolves to state management in yet another state. Here is what is happening. US Fish and Wildlife Service’s public comment period for Wyoming’s wolf-delisting closes in two days, January 13, 2012.
Anti-sportsmen from all over America have been working hard to post comments in an attempt to derail the return of wolves to state management. They are working hard to outnumber comments from the good people of Wyoming.
Let’s even the score.
Here is where it gets interesting. Reportedly, less than 2,000 comments have been made so far. This is because automatic comments are not permitted by Fish and Wildlife’s system.
Approximately 20,000 Big Game Forever supporters can turn the tide. This one will take 5 minutes to go through the sign-in process for US Fish and Wildlife’s system. It is worth your time to help the good people of Wyoming.
See the message below on how to make a comment. Once you are in the system, you can keep your comments very short. Simply indicate you support the right of Wyoming and all states to manage wolves and other wildlife.
Your comment can make a huge difference. Please take 5 minutes today to protect the future of wildlife in America. We are winning one state at a time.
There is currently two ways in which you may submit comments:
1) – A hard copy can be submitted by U.S. mail to:
Public Comments Processing
Division of Policy & Directives Management
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
4401 North Fairfax Drive
Arlington, VA 22203
2) – Via email
To submit comments via email, in your search engine enter the following: http://www.regulations.gov. Once the link opens, look for the box which asks for a Keyword or ID. Enter FWS-R6-ES-2011-0039, then click the search button.
The next screen look for the heading “Document Type” and place a check in the box before Proposed Rule (1).
You should see below a section which should now read: 1 result for “FWS-R6-ES-2011-0039”.
Within the orange box titled “View by Relevance”, you should see to the right Submit a Comment.
Click on Submit a Comment and complete the form.
There are three Sections; 1. Enter Information, 2. Type Comment, and 3. Upload File(s).
Any information you enter in Section 1 will be available for all to read so use caution in how much information you provide. You may only want to provide a first name and your state. You may want to mention your affiliation with SFW or Big Game Forever. I would discourage you from providing your email address, phone number, etc as anyone with internet access will be able to view whatever you submit.
Your comments do not need to be lengthy but should clearly state you support the USFWS proposal to remove wolves from the list of Endangered and Threatened Species.
Once you have completed your comments click on the orange submit button and you should receive confirmation that your comments have been submitted.
Thanks again for your support and participation in this effort,
