We protect, connect and restore wildlands and wildlife from the Washington Coast to the British Columbia Rockies.
Founded in Bellingham, Washington in 1989, we’re your voice for conserving local wildlands and wildlife. Read about our organizational values, or our commitment to Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
Our approximately 22 staffers and half a dozen regular contractors represent nearly 4,000 dues-paying members in Washington, British Columbia and beyond. Our conservation community also includes more than eighteen thousand activists, supporters and online followers.
Bold, innovative and effective, we’ve protected hundreds of thousands of acres of wildlands, supported the recovery of threatened species from wolves to fishers, and touched thousands of lives throughout the greater Northwest. Our successful campaigns and groundbreaking collaborations help define our effective approach to conservation. Elected leaders, government agencies, and conservationists know us for being science-based and tenacious, yet pragmatic.
