We just learned late last night that wolves in the eastern third of Washington – which includes the Diamond Pack and the Salmo Pack residing in the Columbia Highlands – could lose their protection under the Endangered Species Act. In the next 48 hours, wolves in the northern Rockies (which include the eastern third of Washington State) could be the first victims in an unprecedented attack on the Endangered Species Act.

Filed under: Columbia Highlands

You may have seen all the press around the public launch of the Columbia Highlands Initiative last week. We couldn't be more pleased with quality of the coverage. Both Becky Kramer (The Spokesman Review) and Craig Welch (The Seattle Times) did a good job of boiling down the elements of a fairly complex proposal that includes both public and private land conservation.
