Several species were either entirely or partially wiped out from the area in the 19th and 20th centuries. These included the wolf and the fisher.
Those missing pieces have started a comeback, and people can help them take a next step. In 2008, fishers were returned to the Olympic National Park through a successful reintroduction program. Now, the National Park Service is proposing to reintroduce this member of the weasel family to the Cascade Mountains, and the agency will be taking comments on the plan until September 30. To voice your support for this next phase of reintroduction, visit this page from Conservation Northwest.
By bringing fishers back to another part of the Pacific Northwest, we help restore the full promise of this great area.
