Alex Meraz supporting the real Wolves
Twilightish have just posted this article up about Alex Meraz, who has teamed up with Defenders of Wildlife to help save the wolves. This really makes me sad when people turn against nature instead of trying to live together.
Alex Meraz, who plays the “hot-tempered” werewolf Paul in the Twilight movie series is now working with Defenders of Wildlife to help save endangered wolf packs from extinction. Born January 10, 1985, Alex “claims” indigenous Mexican heritage from the P’urhépecha people.
“Wolves used to roam wild across Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula where the Twilight saga takes place. These magnificent animals were honored by the Quileute tribe at La Push and thrived for thousands of years throughout the United States. But growing human populations have nearly wiped wolves off the landscape. North America’s wild wolves (both in the United States and Mexico are still being shot, poisoned and trapped by people who hate or fear these amazing creatures. We need your help to save them.”
It doesn’t matter whether you are “Team Jacob” or ”Team Edward.” All that counts is a love and desire to save our Country’s wildlife.
In line with this campaign, Defenders of Wildlife is now offering up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for killing two perilously endangered Mexican gray wolves in the past two weeks in New Mexico and Arizona. This is now being combined with with rewards posted from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the two states and other conservation organizations and individuals to bring the total reward offered to $52,000.
Defenders of Wildlife is dedicated to the protection of all native animals and plants in their natural communities. With more than 1 million members and activists, Defenders of Wildlife is a leading advocate for innovative solutions to safeguard our wildlife heritage for generations to come.
