Canada lynx

Hi Everyaction,

Endangered Canada lynx are being strangled by cruel neck snares — and Minnesota is letting it happen.

Known for their tufted ears and distinguished goatees, lynx have become very rare in the state — as few as 50 may be left. Officials have abandoned these beautiful cats.

So we're in court now to save them.

You can help with a gift to the Saving Life on Earth Fund. All gifts through May 31 will be matched.

Each year trappers in Minnesota kill thousands of bobcats, pine martens and other wildlife, mostly to sell furs.

But lynx are also getting caught in neck snares and dying.

The Endangered Species Act is clear: Even an accidental killing of a lynx is illegal.

The state's Department of Natural Resources isn't just passively allowing the killing of lynx, either — it's actively trying to get our case defending the animals dismissed.

We won't let government agencies stand idly by, or sometimes actively participate in, the unnecessary and callous killing of wildlife.

We see this attitude toward wolves in the northern Rockies and in Wisconsin, where wolves are killed for sport.

We see it in programs like Wildlife Services, which intentionally kills thousands of wolves, coyotes, black bears, mountain lions, bobcats, foxes and other species each year — in addition to the wildlife it also slaughters "incidentally."

The planet is in the midst of an extinction crisis. The web of biodiversity that sustains ecosystems across the country is on the verge of collapse — while government agencies shrug their shoulders and push for more death.

That's why we’re in court for Canada lynx and so many other creatures. To turn back the tide of extinctions, we must fight for each species, wherever they're in harm's way.

Please help our fight for Canada lynx and other endangered species with a matched gift to the Saving Life on Earth Fund.

For the wild,
