WWF is suing the Norwegian government in an effort to save our wolves, and we need your help.
The wolves in Norway are critically endangered. Still, authorities allow large culling quotas each year. In the season of 2017-2018 27 wolves were shot, in what was the most extensive wolf culling since the wolf was protected in 1971. In the winter of 2018-2019, 26 wolves were shot. This was also the first time they decided to shoot an entire pack of wolves.
WWF believes that the Norwegian wolf management is unconstitutional and also goes against the Norwegian Biodiversity Act and the Bern Convention. That is why we took the Norwegian government to court.
Now between 65 and 67 wolves permanently reside only in Norway. In addition, 40 to 41 wolves are living partly in Norway and neighboring Sweden.
Cost of the lawsuit
Lawsuits are expensive. So far we have had costs connected to the trial in Oslo District Court. The ruling did not go in our favor, but we appealed to the Court of appeal. The trail is set on 2. December to 6. December. Other NGO's assist the government in court, which means that if we lose the case, we might have to pay trial costs both for the attorney general, and for the assisting NGOs, effectively tripling the costs of losing.
WWF have decided to push forward with the court case, despite these increased risks. This matter is too important to not pursue. Our campaign goal is 550,000 NOK, and we hope for your continued support in our efforts to save the wolves!
