It's winter, and a small group of biologists, conservationists, and school kids bubbling with anticipation meet at the edge of an ancient grove in the Cascades. All attention focuses on a wooden box pointed at the forest. Video rolls, cameras snap in the crisp air. The heavy cover is lifted, and out of the box peeks...

Poachers, from a hunter's point of view

Poachers, from a hunter's point of view

In order to help the state better protect our important wildlife, we are funding rewards for the capture of poachers of rare and protected animals like wolves, lynx, and wolverines. We are also funding rewards in cases of spree-killings of other animals like elk. It doesn't matter who you hunt with or where, but, as a longtime hunter I’ve found that people who spend a lot of time in the woods trying to outsmart elk or pheasants or whatever other animal they are legally hunting always have one thing in common.

Collaboration is key, the movie!

"Why Conservation Northwest?" Reason #5 You want solutions for our region’s biggest conservation problems to stand the test of time. We make powerful changes because we welcome everyone to the table and build our vision around shared values. It's Saturday, and the rain is starting here in Bellingham. I don't know about you, but my favorite rainy Saturday activity is curling up on the couch with a good (or bad!) movie. Here are a few videos that show our collaborative work in action.

Good morning, fisher

There are few things in life that will get me out of bed at five in the morning, especially on weekends. I love mornings, but I love lazy mornings even more, habitually slapping the snooze button and curling back up into the warmth of my bed no matter what day it happens to be. But a couple of Saturdays ago, things were a little different.

Like many of you, I spend the holidays with family, enjoying the beauty of Washington's wildest places and my time with family. I am thankful for the mossy, old forests of the Olympic Peninsula I can wander with my nieces, and Conservation Northwest is thankful for supporters like you! What will you be thankful for this season?

Think your holiday travel is hard?

Think your holiday travel is hard?

Posted by jbroughton at Nov 23, 2009 11:50 PM |

When the weather outside is frightful, news on the latest wildlife success sure is delightful. Over the last 2 winters, nearly 50 fisher came to the Olympic Peninsula from BC, with a little help from Conservation Northwest and our partners. This year, even more of these elusive forest mammals are starting their journey to bolster northwest biodiversity, and their trip makes the airport this Wednesday look easy. But, in the end, their travels and the travails of those finding our newest residents are well worth the effort, biologically speaking.
