Don't give the state a single penny of your money until they stop the wholesale slaughter of wolves under the guise of "predator control".
Hunters in Alaska don't like competing with wolves. So the state has been issuing permits for teams of gunners and pilots to chase wolves from aircraft, then shoot them. This January, the Superior Court of Alaska found the state's aerial wolf-shooting scheme invalid. But rather than stop the gunning, the state's Board of Game hastily made up new rules and the killing of wolves continues! In response, we're calling for all supporters to BOYCOTT ALASKA this travel season.
In 1992, Friends of Animals's BOYCOTT ALASKA campaign stopped a similar aerial program after just 15 days.Show your support by submitting photographs of boycott supporters holding signs such as "Boycott Alaska," "I'd rather be here than in Alaska," or "Stop Shooting Wolves." Tell us where "here" is for you. And tell your friends and co-workers. Send a message to the Alaskan government that you won't be spending money in Alaska until it ends its aerial wolf-control program.
Thanks to Francis Murray of Juneau, Alaska, for sending us this idea. At Friends of Animals, we acknowledge that wolves have inherent value. Whether we deem them endangered or plentiful in numbers, and whether or not we see them and deem them beautiful, their individual lives, their futures, and their freedom have meaning and value to them. And that's what counts to us.

Pass the PAW Act -- End Alaska's Aerial Hunting Program!
Tell Congress to support the Protect America's Wildlife (PAW) Act, legislation to close a federal loophole and curb Alaska's brutal aerial hunting program -- and prevent programs like it from spreading to places like the Greater Yellowstone region.
