NMU Students Holding Final Public Signature Event to Save Gray Wolves
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A coalition of Northern Michigan University Students is holding a final effort tomorrow on campus to gather signatures on a petition to save Michigan gray wolves from being hunted.
Members of the NMU EarthKeepers II Student Team and the Native American Student Association will be gathering signatures from registered voters from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow at the Leaning Resources Center.
The local student effort is part of a statewide push to gather signatures by the group Keep Michigan Wolves Protected. Organizers have until March 27 to get 161,305 signatures in the effort allow voters to decide the fate of the wolf hunting bill and this will be the final public signature event in the Upper Peninsula.
Only registered Michigan voters can sign the petitions to force a November 2014 referendum on the wolf debate.
