With fewer than 650 wolves in Michigan and more than 50 years spent to recover them, we need to Keep Michigan Wolves Protected.

About the Issue

With the help of thousands of volunteers around the state, Keep Michigan Wolves Protected collected nearly half a million signatures to place two referendums on the ballot that will protect wolves from pointless trophy hunting, and restore Michiganders right to have a say on wildlife policy. On November 4, voters in Michigan will have the opportunity to vote NO on both proposals to restore protection to our wolves and protect our voting rights.

Keep Michigan Wolves Protected is a coalition of conservation groups, animal welfare organizations, Native American tribes, wildlife scientists, faith groups, veterinarians, hunters, farmers, and concerned Michigan citizens working to protect Michigan's fragile wolf population.  

Latest News

 The state Legislature has a reputation for not just cherry-picking battles, but choosing winners and losers, as well. We still hold out hope, however, that lawmakers will do the right thing and sit out the pitched battle over the hunting of wolves in the Upper Peninsula.
