This week on our Public Affairs Program

This week we speak with Chase Gunnell, the Communications Manager at Conservation Northwest. Conservation Northwest is a local, member supported non profit that seeks to keep the Northwest wild. Connecting habitats is key to their mission; by having connected paths for the wild animals to roam, our ecosystem can stay healthy for every species, including humans.
The comeback of the grey wolf offers an example of how Conservation Northwest works with the Department of Fish and Wildlife and the ranchers concerned about predation of their livestock. By offering the Range Rider program, Conservation Northwest has shown that wolves can live freely without interfering with livestock.
They also offer a Citizen Wildlife Monitoring program, whereby volunteer hikers can help with wildlife cameras that document the animals in our wild spaces.
