Wisconsin Wildlife Day at the Capitol 2023
Participate in a day of legislative briefings, guest speakers, and meet with your legislators in support of wolves and wildlife
This year, we are excited to be partnering with the Great Lakes Wildlife Alliance in co-hosting Wildlife Day at the Capitol. On Tuesday, April 18th, wildlife advocates from across Wisconsin will be gathering at the Capitol in solidarity with wolves, coyotes, and all other wild lives that have made this state their home.
We have crafted a full agenda for advocates, starting with a morning legislative briefing, guest speakers Melissa Smith (GLWA) and Francisco J. Santiago-Ávila (Heartland Rewilding), lunch, and scheduled meetings with your legislators. We will also be providing talking points for advocates covering major wildlife issues, from wolves to killing contests to the Wisconsin Conservation Congress. You don’t want to miss this opportunity!
The primary civic duty of legislators is to listen to their constituents and legislate accordingly. And it’s our duty as citizens to inform them, convey to them our issues and governance concerns, advise them on how to address those concerns, and encourage them to take action through legislation. This is even more important when the lives of vulnerable, voiceless others are at stake.
