Conservation Northwest's story as an organization: successes, coalitions, finances, staff, board, contacts
Proven and successful
For 25 years, we've
"Keeping the Northwest wild" since 1989, Conservation Northwest champions rare and recovering wildlife and protects, connects and restores old-growth forests and other wild areas from the Washington Coast to the B.C. Rockies.
Our M.O. is simple: connect the big landscapes, protect the most vulnerable wildlife, and conserve our natural heritage for future generations.
We work hard to protect wildlife and habitat because what is good for wildlife is good for people, too. Clean air and water, protected forests, mountains, and other wildlands, healthy and connected natural ecosystems—it all adds up to a better quality of life in our region.

Starting coalitions and forming partnerships, we have a history of finding solutions: from our pioneering protection of important lynx habitat in the Loomis State Forest to our cutting-edge work with The Cascades Conservation Partnership, protecting and connecting old-growth forests, wildlife habitat, and trails.
We are known for our accomplishments gained through creative and effective strategies, resulting in the protection of more than 350,000 acres of wild lands and the restoration of forests on hundreds of thousands of acres.
