Finland’s wolf population is dangerously close to extinction, and yet, hunts are still scheduled to continue
During the August 2019–March 2020 hunt, 18 wolves were hunted and tragically killed.
Poachers often use poison and illegal traps to kill wolves, while hunters with permits are allowed to use helicopters and snowmobiles to pursue them. When hunters can’t retrieve the wolves they shoot, the animals are left to suffer from their injuries and may die slowly from blood loss and infection.
Wolves are majestic, intelligent animals who mate for life and have complex social structures within their packs. They’re also an iconic aspect of Finland’s heritage, which is at risk of being lost forever.
Take action by asking the Finnish tourist board and the Finnish minister of agriculture and forestry to end these government-licensed hunts.
