It's the economy, smarty!

It's the economy, smarty!

Posted by bchristensen at Oct 06, 2008 01:30 PM |

It's really not hard to notice the economy has been hard hit this year. We know you are concerned about what will happen in the next few months. We also are feeling the pinch of tightened belts and are working even harder now to ensure a continued success rate for wildlife, wild places, and healthy communities....

Wildlife deja vu

Wildlife deja vu

Posted by Erin Moore at Sep 23, 2008 11:52 AM |

It's déjà vu all over again. In a last-minute fast track of oil drilling, mining, logging, and development, the Bush administration has proposed regulations that cripple the Endangered Species Act. Call in on Tuesday, September 23, to 202-224-3121 and your Member of Congress to support endangered wildlife and habitat.

An inspiring call to action

An inspiring call to action

Posted by Julia Spencer at Sep 16, 2008 11:00 AM |

I recently started working in the Bellingham office as the membership associate, which means I send reminders to renew, process donations, and keep our database organized. Today I got a call that really made me feel proud to be a part of the vital work at Conservation Northwest.

The art of perspective

Posted by bchristensen at Sep 10, 2008 07:16 PM |
Filed under: What's Hot

Sometimes we all get so engrossed in the minutiae of daily life that the "bigger picture" is easy to forget. In the much-loved art classes of my youth, I remember Ms. Maillett reminding us to step back from the canvas to see where our tight focus on a line or a shadow fit into the whole piece. Only from there could we see how it was progressing. It's good advice in more than just art, and today I decided to take a satellite-sized step back from my community of southwestern Whatcom County, WA...

I-90 safer for wildlife and people

I-90 safer for wildlife and people

We are thrilled that the wildlife crossing structures for which we advocated via the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition are included in the Final EIS for the I-90 expansion from Hyak to Easton. I can't wait to see wildlife crossing over the highway on their very own bridges...kind of like the monorail, but for bear and elk...

Turkey-free Whatcom

Posted by bchristensen at Aug 21, 2008 10:02 AM |

A win for wildlife came down the pipe yesterday! State wildlife officials dropped the idea of introducing non-native wild turkeys in Whatcom County after, according to the Bellingham Herald, 87% of the public comments came out against the idea. This is good news for native species, since little is known about the effects of introduced wild turkeys. It is also good news for local farmers, who faced potential crop losses from "turkeys gone wild." (Now that's a bad TV show if I ever heard one.) Thanks to all who responded to our call for action here on Scat!
