Defenders in the Northwest

Our Top Priorities

Defenders of Wildlife's Northwest office works to restore and protect imperiled wildlife and habitats in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. The region's diverse landscapes range from the marine waters of the coast and Puget Sound, to the old growth forests of the Cascade Mountains, to the arid high desert of the interior basins and plateaus.
