Washington’s Fish and Wildlife Commission recently voted 6-3 to allow cougars to be killed at the highest levels in five years. It’s the latest misguided decision by a commission that continues to ignore science.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has wasted millions in taxpayer dollars to create wolf management policies it has chosen not to follow.
Federal officials say they may restrict salmon fishing off the West Coast to help the Pacific Northwest’s critically endangered killer whales, but two environmental groups are suing anyway to ensure it happens.
If we’re going to recover America’s reindeer, they need the strong protections of the Endangered Species Act, one of the nation’s most effective environmental laws.
The Center for Biological Diversity, joined by the Spokane-based Lands Council, on Wednesday announced its intent to sue the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for “failing to finalize endangered species protections and designate critical habitat for Southern Mountain caribou.”
Judge lifts order barring the state Department of Fish and Wildlife from killing an injured wolf from a Ferry County pack preying on cattle.
A conservation group wants the federal government to move forward with protecting offshore areas along the U.S. West Coast to help endangered killer whales.
An environmental group wants couples to think of wild animals before acting like them this Valentine’s Day.
An environmental group is suing the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife for access to some public records on wolf deaths in the state.
A national environmental organization has filed notice that it will sue the federal government over its rejection of Pacific walrus as a threatened or endangered species.
The U.S. government agreed last week to decide over the next several years if federal protections are needed to help a small, fanged predator of the Northern Rockies, massive alligator snapping turtles in the South and seven other troubled species that in some cases have awaited action for years.
A federal judge on Monday ordered the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to reconsider a decision that reduced critical habitat for the South Selkirk caribou herd by 90 percent. Six environmental groups sued the agency over its 2013 decision to designate 30,000 acres of habitat as critical to the recovery of the last caribou herd in the Lower 48 states, instead of the 375,000 acres originally proposed.
An environmental group has petitioned the federal government to reintroduce grizzly bears to the Selway-Bitterroot mountains of Idaho and Montana, saying the region is critical to the bears’ recovery in the Lower 48 states. Re-establishing grizzlies in the Selway-Bitterroots would provide a link between genetically isolated bear populations in Yellowstone National Park and the Northern Rockies, said Andrea Santarsiere, the Center for Biological Diversity’s staff attorney. Past studies indicate that the 16 million-acre region could support 300 to 600 grizzlies.
A federal agency that kills nuisance wildlife is under attack from environmental groups, which say the agency’s use of poison and trapping in Idaho puts other animals at risk. Last year, Wildlife Services killed about 3,300 mammals in the state. Coyotes were the most frequent target.
