Recent reports suggest that President Obama's Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, is prepared to agree to, and is actively promoting, legislative language that would eliminate Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections for all gray wolves in the Northern Rockies, including those in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and portions of Washington, Oregon and Utah.
The proposal is arbitrary and strikes a blow at the very foundation of the Endangered Species Act. Hundreds of wolves — maybe more than a thousand — could be killed. And you and I could lose America's most effective tool for protecting imperiled wildlife.

Children worldwide suffer from abhorrent acts of violence, exploitation and abuse — horrors no child should ever know or experience. Over 300 million of them are subjected to hazardous physical labor, commercial sex exploitation and child trafficking. Others are irrevocably harmed by cultural practices such as female genital mutilation and early marriage. Without basic protections, children are at risk of death, disease, poor physical and mental development, and homelessness.
Without protection from violence and exploitation, children's basic survival and development are at risk. Every day, millions of children are denied their fundamental right to safety and security.
Every child should grow up free from fear and harm. Take action and pledge to help end child exploitation.
Parkinson's disease threatens the health of millions of Americans. Right now, there is no cure for this debilitating disease, which will claim 135 victims today! In the next 10 minutes, someone new will be diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. We are all at risk because this disease is completely random in choosing its victims and unpredictable in how it strikes.
Sign the Wall of Remembrance to celebrate the life of someone you love who suffered thisdebilitating disease.
