Conservation Northwest’s values

Conservation Northwest’s values

ConservationNWAdmin / Apr 23, 2020 / Work Updates

As we celebrate Earth Week and the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, we’d also like to share our organizational values that guide us through our work to protect, connect and restore wildlands and wildlife from the Washington Coast to the British Columbia Rockies.

Written collaboratively between our staff and board, these values have been at the core of Conservation Northwest since our founding 30 years ago: Adaptability, Boldness, Collaboration, Empathy, Equity, Integrity, Pragmatic Idealism, Rationality and Tenacity.

This Earth Week, we’re also faced with an unexpected challenge that has complicated the powerful, collective action we and so many others anticipated on Earth Day 2020: COVID-19.

Through this crisis, we’re seeing the parallels between the change that is needed to address both COVID-19 and the threats to our environment. If we invest in actions to mitigate climate change impacts, work towards equitable solutions for marginalized and underrepresented communities, find ways to collaborate effectively, and safeguard our natural heritage for future generations, we will come out of this crisis stronger and more resilient.

Despite these setbacks, our dedication to a wild future remains strong. With these values laying out the foundation of our work, we’ll maintain our efforts to keep the Northwest wild, and continue serving as your voice for conserving local wildlands and wildlife.
