What we do

Conservation Northwest protects wildlife and connects wild lands from Washington's Coast to the BC Rockies to benefit people and wildlife. We work for wildlife & habitat and forests & communities, highlighting three special places.

Conservation Northwest protects wildlife and connects forests and wild areas from the Washington Coast through the Cascades Mountains to the British Columbia Rockies. Working in four greater ecosystems anchoring the region, we find creative solutions grounded in science to create a vital and healthy future for people and wildlife.

Overarching programs

Wildlife & habitat

We work with managers and locals to promote practices that benefit threatened wildlife, such as grizzly bears, wolves, wolverines, Canada lynx, and mountain caribou. From owls to pine martens, mule deer to bull trout, wildlife make our region vibrant and are excellent indicators of the health of our forests and waters.

Forests & community

We campaign to protect and restore national forests and other public lands. Together with scientists and communities, we advance recreation and restoration that is gentle on the land and creates high-skill, high-wage jobs.

Special places

Columbia Highlands

The upland forests, meadows, and mountains of northeastern Washington's Columbia Highlands are rich in wildlife, habitat, and community. We are helping protect wild lands and wildlife here.

North Cascades

The Cascade Mountains form a long rib through Oregon and Washington and up into Canada. Some of our best wildlands are the North Cascades, north of Interstate 90. This diverse range is home to rare grizzly bears, lynx, wolverines, and many other wildlife.

British Columbia

A wilder Northwest would not be complete without protecting wildlife and connecting wild areas across the border with our Canadian neighbor to the north.

Connecting habitats

Even small patches of natural habitat, once connected, can act as a larger whole, helping wildlife now and in a time of climate change.

Predators & prey

Conservation Northwest supports protection and restoration of wildlife habitat for all native wildlife (including carnivores). We also support science-based wildlife management and fair-chase hunting according to the laws of the state of Washington.
