Saving Grizzly Bears

Jewel was a Stein-Nahatlatch grizzly bear from one of the smallest and most isolated grizzly bear populations in British Columbia. Now she is dead, a victim of poaching. It doesn't need to happen! The new Coast to Cascades Grizzly Bear Initiative, launched this summer to protect grizzly bears Coast to Cascades, plans to safeguard year-round ample habitat and connect remaining grizzly bear populations.

Range Riding for Wolf Recovery

The Spokesman-Review recently ran a great feature article telling the story of Conservation Northwest's budding range rider program. This year, we expanded the program to sponsor range riders for three ranch families in Washington. All ranches are reporting great results with no wolf or wildlife conflicts; the idea of this no nonsense, non-lethal method is spreading across the state.

Wild Links Connects People for Wildlife

In a climate changed world, the North Cascades will be refuge for wildlife moving in search of habitats necessary for their continued survival. To bolster that refuge and bridge science and practice, Conservation Northwest this year hosted a Wild Links conference at Manning Park, BC. The seventh annual event focused on the new Cascadia Partner Forum, a network of natural resource practitioners building the adaptive capacity of our region for wildlife in the face of climate change.

A Future WITH Wildlife

New members joined Conservation Northwest during our annual "A world without wildlife is scary" member drive, helping create a world with wildlife and a future that's surely not so scary. Do you have a friend or family member to bring into the fold? It's not too soon to give them a gift subscription for the holidays, supporting wildlife and connecting wild places from the Coast to the Rockies.
