Recover Pacific fishers in the Cascades
A fisher leaps into the Olympic
Thanks for caring! The comment period is over. Thank you for supporting fisher reintroduction to the Cascades.
Building on the historic effort on the Olympic Peninsula, the National Park Service is planning to reintroduce the Pacific fisher to the Cascades. They are currently seeking your comments on the Environmental Assessment for Mount Rainier and North Cascades National Parks.
You can help recover Pacific fisher to their place in the Cascades. Use the form below to take action.
Fishers are small, reclusive members of the weasel family that were trapped to near extinction in Washington at the turn of the century. Their reintroduction restores an important ecological function to the forests of Washington and has been successful in other states and parts of Washington. With your input, agencies worked with partners like us to restore fisher to the wildlands of Olympic National Park from 2008-2010. A WDFW study also identified areas in the North and South Cascades with abundant habitat and prey for fisher. Your help is needed again to continue the success in the Cascades!
Tell the National Park Service you support recovering fishers in the Cascades. Comment deadline is September 30, 2013.
Personalizing your message makes a difference - and gets read! Thank you.
