News updates on our work from the Coast to the Rockies.
A mature female wolf was found dead this week within the territory of the Teanaway Pack northeast of Cle Elum. Because wolves remain federally listed as Endangered in Washington’s Cascades, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agents are investigating the incident.
Based on the information currently available, we believe this to be a flagrant violation of state law that warrants appropriately severe penalties if the offender is found guilty.
Join Conservation Northwest, the Wilderness Awareness School, and the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition for this winter’s field season monitoring wildlife in the Cascades at Snoqualmie Pass!
This coming Tuesday, October 14th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. WDFW will host a public meeting on wolf management in Room 1EF of the Lynnwood Convention Center.
Public comment on the restoration plan is open through October 15th. Please show your support for recovering fishers in the Cascades by submitting a comment below!
Conservation groups are troubled by some of the areas left out of the designation. The Kettle Range in northeast Washington, for example, has vast tracts of quality habitat and a long, continuous record of lynx presence, including a sighting in July.
As the Huckleberry Wolf Pack situation continues to evolve, Conservation Northwest has been in regular communication with the office of Governor Jay Inslee, our elected leaders in the state legislature and Department of Fish and Wildlife officials. We have also been receiving direct updates from agency specialists and independent wolf experts working on the ground at the incident site in Stevens County.
Conservation Northwest is disturbed by conflict occurring between the members of the Huckleberry Wolf Pack and a sheep herd in Stevens County. We have been contacted by Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) and informed that up to four members of the pack will be killed.
Protecting habitat for lynx in northeast Washington is essential to lynx conservation.
The world’s southernmost caribou need all the protection they can get! Tell USFWS not to downlist WA’s woodland caribou.
Ranchers have begun turning out cows and calves onto seasonal grazing lands. Some of those lands overlap with territory home to Washington’s recovering wolves. And that’s where you’ll find livestock under the watchful eye of range riders co-sponsored by Conservation Northwest.
Submit a comment by July 18 to WDFW to support Washington’s recovering wolves. The agency is considering new proposals for managing predator/prey relationships and developing a plan to manage wolves after they are no longer classified as an endangered species.
