Fishers Return to the Cascades
Fishers are back in Washington's Cascade Mountains for the first time in over 70 years! Seven fishers were reintroduced near Mount Rainier on December 3rd, 2015.
The release of seven fishers is just the start of an effort to rebuild populations by moving as many as 80 fishers within the next two to three years to the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and Mount Rainier National Park. The releases will occur on the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and in Mount Rainier National Park. Two to three years later, releases are planned to follow in the North Cascades in the North Cascades National Park Service Complex and in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
Learn more about the first fisher release, the result of a decade-long partnership between the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the National Park Service, Conservation Northwest and other partners, at: http://bit.ly/1NtBwJd
Chief Ian Campbell (Squamish Nation) on grizzly bear recovery
For Chief Ian Campbell of the Squamish Nation, protecting, connecting and restoring grizzly bear populations is part of our responsibility to future generations.

Voices Of Cascadia: The Next Generation - WildLinks Conference 2015
If the youth leaders of tomorrow's conservation movement could tell natural resource practitioners, wildlife and wildlands agencies, and non-profit organizations one thing, what would it be? To kick off the 2015 WildLinks Conference we decided to find out!
Working with students from the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at University of... as well as attendees of the North Cascades Institute's Environmental Learning Center, we interviewed over a dozen young people about what they thought was important for a wild and healthy future in our region. This video is a sampling of what they had to say.
Led by the Cascadia Partner Forum and Conservation Northwest, WildLinks is our annual conference and science briefing that brings together researchers, conservationists, land managers, agency officials, tribal and First Nations leaders and other experts from Washington and British Columbia. The goal is to share ideas and better coordinate keeping our region's wildlands and wildlife populations healthy and connected.
The 2015 WildLinks Conference is hosted by the Cascadia Partner Forum and sponsored by Conservation Northwest, the Skagit Environmental Endowment Commission, Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife, North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative and the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative.

Connecting Wildlife Habitat Under and Over I-90
The landscape in Washington's central Cascades, spanning Snoqualmie Pass and bisected by Interstate 90, forms an important travel corridor for people, goods and wildlife. Since 2000, through The Cascades Conservation Partnership and the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition, we’ve led efforts to reconnect Washington’s north and south Cascades by protecting and restoring habitat and establishing safe wildlife crossings under and over I-90. Video produced by Ted Grudowski.
Ranching and Grizzly Bears 2015
Originally produced in 2004 by Conservation Northwest (then the Northwest Ecosystem Alliance) Chris Morgan (Insight Wildlife Management), Vidcom Productions and John Cofrin, we've updated this 30 minute documentary-style film for 2015 and the announcement of a long-awaited North Cascades grizzly bear restoration EIS!
WildLinks: Why Grizzly Bears?
Produced by Conservation Northwest for WildLinks 2014 and the Cascadia Partner Forum, this short video dives into the role of grizzly bears as an important umbrella species for wildlife and wild lands across the Northwest, from B.C. into Washington's North Cascades. Restoring these Northwest natives, now absent from much of their historic range, provides a powerful tool for collaboration, coexistence and region-wide conservation.
The Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project
When it comes to documenting the presence of wildlife in our region, Conservation Northwest Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project staff and volunteers are on the front lines; tracking wildlife where state and federal agencies don’t have the resources to go, from the Washington Cascades to the Kettle Crest to British Columbia. Video produced by Ted Grudowski.
Chief Michelle Edwards on Grizzly Bears in British Columbia

Wolf Management Research Symposium
On October 29, 2014, some of the leading experts on wolf ecology and management came together at the University of Washington to present current science on the different impacts that lethal management may have on wolf ecology, pack structure, habitat connectivity, social acceptance, and recovery and to discuss how to apply this knowledge to wildlife management in the Pacific Northwest.
Howling with Washington Wolves in Colville National Forest
We came back from a range riding trip in Eastern Washington with this neat video of using howls as a tool to locate a wolf pack, and make sure they were separated from the rancher’s livestock. To read more about our summer 2014 range riding trip, and our wolf-livestock conflict avoidance programs, visit our Scat! blog here.
