Thank you, from Washington's lynx!

On Dec 26, we submitted your 500 comments. Thank you for helping protect lynx and lynx habitat in northeast Washington!

Canada lynx are rare and elusive wildcats that depend on large pristine tracts of boreal forest habitat with ample snowshoe hare and persistent deep snow. In Washington, lynx populations were hammered by trapping through the 1980s and habitat degradation. They’re starting to recover - but lynx need your help.

Thank you for taking action to protect lynx by Dec. 26! Urge protection for critical lynx habitat across the state.

While the US Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing protecting well-known lynx habitat in the North Cascades, Washington’s second largest tract of quality habitat in the Kettle Range may get left behind, again!

The Kettle Range forms the habitat bridge between lynx in the North Cascades and Rockies. This habitat and prey-rich area is recognized by federal biologists and Washington's own recovery strategy as essential to lynx recovery. Learn more.

Personalizing your message makes a difference - and gets read! Thank you.


Join state and federal lynx experts who have uniformly called for critical habitat protection in the Kettle Range. Send your comments by Dec. 26, 2013.
