Extremists are targeting the most endangered wolves for death. Wolf pups in at least two packs of struggling lobos are left fatherless as three alpha males are dead or missing.

Please help us save the remaining wolf families in the Southwest and other imperiled wildlife with your urgent donation of:

We need just 20 donations from your state to reach our goal of $40,000 by midnight tomorrow.

With your support we'll help catch criminal wolf-killers and ensure a lasting future for struggling lobos.

Dear Wildlife Supporter,

Terrible news from the Southwest: two alpha male lobos are dead and another is missing -- a horrible setback in the troubled recovery of rare Mexican wolves, the rarest wolves in the world.

With these three alpha males gone, the fate of the entire population of wild lobos hangs in the balance.

Please donate today to help catch wolf killers who are stalking and killing rare lobos and put in place an effective recovery program for the world's most endangered wolves.

These latest killings couldn't come at a worse time. At last count earlier this spring, there were only 42 lobos left in the wild. At least half of the packs that bred last year have lost their alpha males.

Alpha males are crucial to the survival of wolf packs. They provide leadership and food for the entire family, including pups born just months ago. Without the alphas, the fatherless pups of at least two packs of these rare animals are less likely to survive -- putting lobos ever closer to a second extinction in the wild.

Please donate now to help save the remaining wild lobos and other wildlife struggling to survive.

After decades of trapping, shooting and poisoning, lobos were driven to extinction in the wild. Then, in 1998, these wolves returned to the wilds of New Mexico and Arizona, thanks to a captive breeding program.

But now the situation for lobos is grave. A venomous anti-wolf movement has taken its toll on these wolves -- and now it seems there is a concerted effort by criminal killers to stalk down and slaughter these magnificent animals and drive them to a second extinction.

More than 30 lobos have been ruthlessly killed by poachers in the past eleven years. But limited resources continue to plague law enforcement officials: Only two wolf-killers have been prosecuted while poaching remains the leading cause of death among Mexican wolves.

Please make an emergency donation to ensure the survival of Mexican wolves in the wild.

These amazing animals simply can't survive the fierce onslaught of criminal extremists without our help. Your contribution will help Defenders…

  •  Post rewards to help law enforcement capture lawless wolf-killers and put them behind bars.
  •  Mobilize thousands of activists to demand more law enforcement capacity at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to catch and prosecute poachers.
  •  Push federal officials to fast-track a science-based plan for restoring lobos to their rightful home in the Southwest.
  •  Counter the hate-filled propaganda of extremists through a robust public education campaign.
  •  Use proven on-the-ground techniques to keep wolves away from livestock and out of harm's way.

Please donate now to help save the last wild lobos and ensure a lasting future for these amazing animals in the wilds of the Southwest.
