Thanks for taking action for gray wolves.

Dear Rusty,

Thanks for signing our petition Demand Justice for Echo, the Slain Grand Canyon Wolf to protect wolves on Care2, and welcome to the Center for Biological Diversity, where for 25 years we’ve been standing up for wolves and other wildlife across America. We’ve won protection for 571 species and more than 476 million acres of wildland.

Wolves need our help. While wildlife-hating politicians in Washington threaten to end their legal protection from coast to coast, wolves are already being slaughtered in trophy hunts in Idaho and Montana. They’re being killed by government gunmen to protect the profits of the meat industry from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Northwest. And they’re being illegally shot down from Kansas to Utah.

The Center has been working to protect wolves for more than 25 years. Our 1990 lawsuit led to the re-introduction of the Mexican gray wolf in the Southwest. We stopped the Bush administration from ending wolf protection in 2003 — this year alone we protected California’s wolves and ended Wyoming’s wolf hunt.

You can find out more about the Center’s wolf work on our campaign page. There’s a timeline of our wolf work, a map of historic gray wolf habitat, and check out our infographic on the wolf wars. We’ve even identified 350,000 additional square miles where wolves could roam. Join with the Center and help us stand up for gray wolves.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more updates and opportunities to take action and inviteyour friends to join our network.

Thanks for your support and keep in touch,

Shut Down Hollywild Animal Park!

Tell USDA: Shut Down Hollywild Animal Park!

Shut Down Hollywild
Animal Park

Sign Kristina’s Petition


Hollywild Animal Park in Wellford, South Carolina, has a horrible track record of animal health and safety violations, and recently had a fire that killed 27 of their animals! The USDA is currently investigating Hollywild, so Care2 member Kristina Snyder launched a petition urging them to shut Hollywild down.

Sign Kristina’s petition and help put an end to Hollywild’s legacy of poor animal care!

From a lack of veterinary care to rotten carcasses left in animal enclosures, Hollywild had over a dozen animal health and welfare violations the last time USDA inspectors were at the facility, triggering an in-depth investigation into the park. Tragically, before that investigation could be completed, an electrical fire burned down one of Hollywild’s animal barns, and killed 27 of their animals.

Beyond their previous violations, Care2 member Kristina Snyder maintains they are a breeding zoo that allows human/cub interactions and perpetuates the exotic pet problem, leaving accredited sanctuaries inundated with older, unwanted exotics.

Tell the USDA: It’s time to end Hollywild’s shameful run and shut them down.

Thanks for taking action!
