Protect Pacific Northwest Wolves

The US Fish and Wildlife Service recently reopened its comment period on removing federal protections for wolves in the lower 48, including Cascades wolves, after a scientific peer review recently found that the Service's proposal lacked scientific merit. Even if you wrote for wolves earlier, please send a letter for wolves by March 27!

Roads and ATVs

Conservation Northwest made news last year by promoting passage of a state law to increase motorized recreation opportunities while reducing the environmental harm caused by unethical riders through enforcement measures like required visible license plates. The law got off to a bumpy start when Okanogan County overreached in implementing it.

40 Years for Endangered Species

This year the Endangered Species Act turned 40. Conservation Northwest's Executive Director Mitch Friedman was one of the authors invited to appear in a special edition of Northwest Science on the ESA in the Pacific Northwest. Mitch speaks about the value of a rare act for rare wildlife. Read the story, "A Pirate Looks at 40."
