Working together for conservation
Founded in Bellingham in 1989, from the Washington Coast to the British Columbia Rockies we’re your voice for conserving wildlands and native wildlife.
Our approximately 20 staffers represent 4,000 dues-paying members in Washington, British Columbia and beyond. Our conservation community also includes more than ten thousand activists, supporters and online followers.
Creative and effective, we’ve protected hundreds of thousands of acres of wildlands, supported the recovery of threatened species from wolves to fishers, and touched thousands of lives throughout the greater Northwest.
Our successful campaigns and groundbreaking collaborations help define our effective approach to conservation. Elected leaders, government agencies, and conservationists know us for being tenacious yet pragmatic.
