Saving Grizzly Bears, Coast to Cascades

In September, Conservation Northwest helped launch a new Coast to Cascades Grizzly Bear Initiative. We have partnered with First Nation, conservation, and community interests in a bold move to protect grizzly bears from harm; prevent loss and fragmentation of their habitat; and gain plans to recover grizzly bears in wilder areas across southwest British Columbia and in the Cascades.

A Step Back for Wolves and Recovery

The North Cascades region has been sadly plagued with illegal wolf kills in the last five years, including the tragic recent killing of a wolf in the North Cascades. These losses are slowing recovery and making us ask, why? And how do we change this unfortunate pattern? Recovery of Washington's wolves is at a fragile stage; Northwest wolves need ongoing Endangered Species Act protections.

Kettles Lynx and Cascades Fishers

Canada lynx are poised for new critical habitat protections, including, with your help, habitat in northeast Washington's Kettle River Range. The Kettles are important, they connect lynx in the North Cascades to their Rocky Mountain relatives. For Pacific fishers: thank you for your letters last month supporting the ongoing successful return of fishers to Washington State and their planned reintroduction into Mount Rainier and North Cascades National Parks!

Much Ado About Wildlife

Attend a Gold Creek planting party, restoring habitat while plugging willow and snowberry along a new I-90 wildlife underpass (Oct 19). Next, join us in Roslyn for a training, "Eyes in the Woods," to protect wolves, deer, and other animals from illegal killings (Oct 23). Finally, a big thank you to all who attended our annual Hope for a Wild Future auction! Together, your gifts, activism, and volunteer time helps the wildlife and wild places you love, and we love you for it.
