Support a wild Northwest on Giving Tuesday!
Conservation Northwest / Nov 30, 2020 / Members
Please make a gift and leave a lasting impact on Northwest wildlife and wildlands this Giving Tuesday!
By Matthew Brouwer, Development Director
Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday, part of a global movement of generosity and one of our biggest days of philanthropy all year. We hope you’ll take part with a tax-deductible gift that helps make our region a safer, more resilient place for remarkable Northwest wildlife!
Despite the pandemic and continued mounting threats to our environment, 2020 has been another critical year with a number of important accomplishments and impacts.
A sample of just a few of these include:
Safer passage for mule deer and other wildlife on Highway 97 thanks to nearly a mile of protective fencing and renovated Janis Bridge undercrossing through the collaborative Safe Passage 97 project
- The launch of our new Cascade to Olympics program which is making great strides fighting to prevent a dam on the Chehalis River and identifying priority areas for protection to improve habitat connectivity across southwest Washington
- Continuing to work with the U.S. Forest Service through our Forest Field Program to remove culverts for better fish passage, repair dispersed campsites in sensitive river ecosystems, and restore thousands of acres of degraded forestland
- Fighting for Endangered Species Act protections for wolverines so that they can continue to make a comeback in the Cascades
- Working with conservation partners and government leaders for stronger protections for Washington’s vulnerable bighorn sheep herds as they face ongoing threats of disease from domestic sheep
Your generosity makes this all of important work possible, helping to advance a science-based and collaborative approach that brings together ranchers and farmers, recreationists, tribes and First Nations, conservationists, elected leaders and many others toward lasting solutions that benefit both people and wildlife.
