Conservation Northwest
  • Keeping the Northwest Wild

    700 views 1 year ago
    For 27 years we've worked to protect, connect and restore wildlife and wildlands in Washington and British Columbia. We've won protections for millions of acres of wildlife habitat, reintroduced endangered species and advanced coexistence with iconic carnivores, and reconnected fragmented landscapes for wildlife including lynx, caribou, elk, wolves, wolverines and grizzly bears.

    Using conservation biology, a collaborative approach, and staff living and working on the ground across our region, we're keeping the Northwest wild for future generations.

    This short film premiered at our April 2016 Hope for a Wild Future auction and dinner. Produced by Ted Grudowski and Chase Gunnell. Special thanks to Dr. Gordon H. Orians, Doug MacDonald, Mitch Friedman, Jeff Baierlein and Jen Watkins. Additional footage by Paul Bannick, Alaina Kowitz, Story Warren, Eric Zamora, Lena Jackson, Sean Frego, Chase Gunnell, Eric Snider, Jeremy Williams, Western Wildlife Outreach, WDFW, WSDOT and ODFW.
