People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has launched a campaign to save the remaining wolves in Finland from extinction. PETA on Tuesday published a so-called action alert according to which the wolf population in Lapland is at the brink of extinction due to poaching and licensed hunting. The animal rights organisation urges its supporters to take action by writing to Petteri Orpo (NCP), the Minister of Agriculture and Forestry, and Jaakko Lehtonen, the director of the Finnish Tourist Board.

PETA launches campaign to save Lapland's wolves
Instead of endorsing such an assault on its wildlife, Finland should encourage responsible ecotourism in regions inhabited by wolves, PETA proposes.
