From elk and black bears to rare wolves and wolverines, wildlife are on the move in Washington’s Cascade Mountains. But for decades Interstate 90 has been a serious barrier to creatures traveling through some of the state’s richest habitat, impacting wildlife populations and putting both motorists and animals in danger. A project that broke ground on Tuesday, June 9th plans to change that.
WILD NW action alert #246: Please call or email state Sen. Andy Hill and urge him to include HB 2107 in the 2015-16 budget to safeguard wolf recovery.
State should halt hazardous logging operations in Carlton burn area, revise inadequate regulations on logging in post-fire landscapes to protect people, property, fish and wildlife.
Photographed at a wolverine monitoring site in the Chiwaukum area between Stevens Pass and Leavenworth, this is the first wolf officially documented in this area since wolf recovery began in Washington in the late 2000’s.
State and federal biologists have confirmed it: a remote camera photo captured by Conservation Northwest’s Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project northwest of Leavenworth is indeed a gray wolf. It’s the first officially documented in the area since wolf recolonization began in Washington in the late 2000s.
With your support, we raised over $28,000 through the Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG! And that's not including the matching funds that will still come in.
The first wolf confirmed back in Western WA just died on I-90
“This proposal is a step in the wrong direction for wolf recovery in our region,” said Chase Gunnell, spokesman for Conservation Northwest.
WILD NW #245: Speak out for a healthy, sustainable and wild future in the Teanaway Community Forest.
We need your help to remind senators that their constituents want fair and ample funding for environmental programs and opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.
With support from our conservation community, we raised nearly $300,000 to fund work that’s keeping the Northwest wild!
