Conservation Northwest, http://www.conservationnw.org, has a 26‐year track record of success protecting, connecting and restoring wildlands and ancient forest across the Pacific Northwest. We champion the recovery of our region’s most iconic wildlife including wolves, wolverines, fisher, lynx, mountain caribou and grizzly bears.
Through tenacious yet pragmatic advocacy, on-the-ground science and diverse collaborations, we aim to connect the big landscapes, protect the most vulnerable wildlife, and conserve our natural heritage for future generations. We’re keeping the Northwest wild because clean air and water, pristine forests, mountains, and other wildlands, resilient and connected natural ecosystems—it all adds up to a better quality of life in our region.
