Your help is urgently needed to maintain public pressure on the Ministry of 
Natural Resources to protect the wolves of Algonquin Park permanently. 
Algonquin Park is home to the largest protected population of Eastern Canadian 
Wolves, a federally listed species at risk. A moratorium on killing these 
wolves in townships bordering the park is set to expire on June 30th 2004, 
giving the population only 30 months to recover from years of human 
persecution. Minister David Ramsay will be making a decision any day now on 
whether to extend the moratorium or let it expire. 

Your help is needed! In a few quick and easy steps you can send a message to 
Premier McGuinty and Minister Ramsay demanding permanent protection for one of 
the most endangered wolf populations in the world. Visit the Wolves Ontario! 
website at: www.wolvesontario.org/wolves/action/ There is a template letter 
awaiting the addition of your name and address. 

Earthroots will be organizing a demonstration to deliver thousands of 
postcards to the Minister's office urging him to protect Algonquin wolves 
forever. If you can help us get more postcards signed or are willing to be at 
the demonstration, please phone Melissa at 416-599-0152 x12 or email 
melissa@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx for more information. We need to let the Ontario 
Government know that the public supports stronger protection for wolves and 
other species at risk.
