Join Mitch Friedman, Executive Director of Conservation Northwest, as he
presents an overview of population status and trends, recovery efforts and
legal protection levels for gray wolves, grizzly bears, lynx, fishers and
wolverines in Washington State. The Washington State populations of these
carnivores were all drastically reduced or eliminated during the past 150
years. Mitch will discuss what is being done to bring back these animals.
Mitch will also talk about the Gray Wolf Conservation and Management Plan
for Washington and the key role Conservation Northwest is playing investing
in conflict avoidance efforts to build increased social tolerance for
wolves.

Mitch Friedman founded Conservation Northwest in 1988. He has a degree in
zoology from the University of Washington and has received conservation
awards from Sunset Magazine, Society for Conservation Biology, The
Wilderness Society, and others. At Conservation Northwest Mitch has led the
effort to infuse land- scape scale conservation biology into advocacy
strategies. The success of this approach is evident in great gains
protecting habitat connectivity between the North Cascades Ecosystem and
wild areas to the south (Central Cascades), east (the Rockies), and
northwest (B.C. Coast and Chilcotin Ranges), as well as recovery of native
carnivores including gray wolves, fishers, lynx and wolverines.

Always on the 4th Tuesday of the month:
January 27, 7pm to 9 pm at the Whatcom Museum
(in the Rotunda Room of the Old City Hall building) free & open to the
public!
