Northwest Wolves Need Continued Protection

The Obama administration has proposed removing Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in most of the lower 48 states - including the Pacific Northwest. Conservation Northwest supports protecting wolves under the ESA until wolves have fully recovered, especially vulnerable packs such as those returning to Washington's Cascade Mountains.

Accountability for a Quieter Backcountry

Last week we moved a step closer to ending the epidemic of illegal and harmful use of off-road vehicles. Unethical ATV riders have created thousands of illegal and damaging trail miles on Washington state lands, costing millions in property damage. They can be a noisy disruption in a quiet backcountry for those who hike or hunt. HB 1632 will reduce abuse while expanding legitimate ATV recreation opportunities.

Wildlife Monitoring Goes Live

This winter, citizen scientists with the Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project captured unique images of Washington's wolverines and documented the first wildlife use of the Gold Creek I-90 underpass. A new report documents winter results from Washington's largest volunteer wildlife monitoring project, run jointly by Conservation Northwest, Wilderness Awareness School, and I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition.

Summer Crew for Year-round Wildlife

Want to help outside this summer? Washington's wildlife and people both benefit. If you live Westside – attend an invasive species pulling project at Amabilis Mountain in the important I-90 wildlife corridor. Eastside – apply your brawn building the Gibraltar Trail, then hang out with friends at Swan Lake for the annual Kettle Range Rendezvous.
