Tweetstorm: Stop #HJResolution69 and #SJResolution18 which seek to void the Alaska National Wildlife Refuges Rule.
All of these carefully crafted protective measures were designed to ensure that wolves and bears remained as viable components of Alaska's environment.
The fault for the demise of these world-famous wolves rests squarely on the shoulders of Alaska Department of Fish and Game Commissioner Sam Cotten. He may not have pulled the trigger, but he permitted it.
The Sportsmen's Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act of 2015 (H.R. 2406), aka the "SHARE Act", is an irresponsible omnibus of pro-hunting and anti-environment regulations that, if passed, would open federal lands to trapping, prevent the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service from restricting the illegal ivory trade, allow hunters to import the bodies of polar bears killed as trophies in Canada, prevent the government from regulating the use of lead ammunition (the consumption of which by wildlife can result in illness and death), and force wildlife managers to consider hunting and trapping interests above all others.
The Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act (S.659 and S.405) would destroy years of work done by animal protection advocates, environmentalists, and conservationists to protect endangered species and other wildlife. Such blind dedication to implementing recreational killing is detrimental to both conservation efforts and goes against the wishes of the majority of Americans.
