They like keeping it wild… and so do we! During the month of November, Mountain Rose Herbs will double your donation to Cascadia Wildlands. We will match your donation dollar for dollar up to $5000!

You only have until November 30, 2013, so make that pledge today!

We are extremely proud to support Cascadia Wildlands and the work they do to protect wild salmon, old growth forests, endangered predators, and the natural environment we hold so dear. This year, we are focusing on the pressing issue of wolf recovery and the proposed federal delisting, which would remove the gray wolf from the Endangered Species Act in the lower 48 states.

By giving to The Wolf Defense Fund, you are supporting the efforts of Cascadia Wildlands to use legal tools and grassroots efforts to remind the United States Fish and Wildlife Service of their duty to defend an endangered animal hunted to near extinction in the 1920’s. Now, they are threatened once again.

Take Action!

The Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell, needs to hear from you. The public comment period on delisting the gray wolf has been extended to December 17, 2013. Click the link below and make your voice heard!
