Grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars/ mountain lions,bobcats, wolverines, lynx, foxes, fishers and martens are the suite of carnivores that originally inhabited North America after the Pleistocene extinctions. This site invites research, commentary, point/counterpoint on that suite of native animals (predator and prey) that inhabited The Americas circa 1500-at the initial point of European exploration and subsequent colonization. Landscape ecology, journal accounts of explorers and frontiersmen, genetic evaluations of museum animals, peer reviewed 20th and 21st century research on various aspects of our "Wild America" as well as subjective commentary from expert and layman alike. All of the above being revealed and discussed with the underlying goal of one day seeing our Continent rewilded.....Where big enough swaths of open space exist with connective corridors to other large forest, meadow, mountain, valley, prairie, desert and chaparral wildlands.....Thereby enabling all of our historic fauna, including man, to live in a sustainable and healthy environment. - Blogger Rick

Keeping the Northwest wild

Creative and effective, for over 25 years Conservation Northwest has protected hundreds of thousands of acres of wildlands and wildlife habitat, and touched thousands of lives throughout the greater Northwest. We're your voice for conserving wildlands and amazing wildlife.
Our M.O. is simple: connect the big landscapes, protect the most vulnerable wildlife, and conserve our natural heritage for future generations.

Our Mission

Using creative conservation since our founding in 1989, we work to "Keep the Northwest wild" -- protecting, connecting and restoring old-growth forests and other wild areas from the Washington Coast to the B.C. Rockies: places vital to a healthy future for us, our children, and wildlife.
We also champion rare and recovering wildlife in our region, from gray wolves, wolverines, lynx and grizzly bears, to marbled murrelets, mountain caribou and pacific fishers. Our wildlife advocacy, annual Wild Links Conference and Citizen Wildlife Monitoring programs are at the core of our work for a wilder Northwest. 
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.

    Our work in review

    Our achievements include

    • In 2008, our wildlife monitoring cameras documented the first wolf pack to return to Washington in 70 years. In 2011, volunteers did it again, providing the first record of the Teanaway Pack, as well as the recovery of wolverines south of Stevens Pass.
    • We led, and won, protection for Canada lynx under the Endangered Species Act.
    • We helped gain a recovery plan for Washington's wolves and are finding solutions to improve the outlook for wolves and ranchers and others.
    • We protected 25,000 acres of the Loomis State Forest in north-central Washington, essential habitat for lynx.
    • We helped reintroduce the Pacific fisher to the Olympic Peninsula; next step is recovery of this native forest mammal to the Cascades.
    • We achieved, with Canadian conservation groups, a major commitment from the BC government to protect habitat for the endangered mountain caribou
    • Over the years we've spearheaded a number of successful partnerships and coalitions, includingThe Cascades Conservation Partnership in 2000, and the Coast to Cascades Grizzly Bear Initiative in 2013.
    • In northeastern Washington's Columbia Highlands we are keeping wilderness alive, connecting wildlife habitat, protecting forests, and improving local jobs.
