July Wildlife Update: Video of New Wolf Pups

We hope the summer is treating you well and that you’re enjoying time outdoors (perhaps even in wolf country!). Here in Oregon, there’s some exciting news out of Mt. Hood....

Welcoming our new Bend intern!

Hi, I am Kelby! I just recently joined Oregon Wild as the Ochoco Mountains Outreach and Stewardship Intern for the 2019 summer. Coming from Colorado, I grew up outdoors and have fostered a love for nature which has pushed me to pursue a career in conservation. This passion for conservation work has come from my love of animals and nature that I have had my entire life. 

Clearcut Kings Killed the Climate Bill

HB 2020 wasn’t perfect, but the unholy alliance of logging barons, militia groups, and anti-environmental politicians that killed it should be deeply disturbing to all Oregonians.

Hopes and fears for Oregon's Ancient Forests

I haven’t been out hiking this spring and early summer as much as I’d like. (Most of you readers can probably say the same, right?)

I think many have the wrong idea about what it is that I, and the rest of us at Oregon Wild, do day in and day out. While we do get out to enjoy our forests and rivers every chance we get, the day to day work of protecting our wildlands, forests, and wildlife habitat takes place mostly on a keyboard, on conference calls with other advocates, or around a table with other interested parties - not all of whom agree with what we do. 

June Wildlife Update: The Wolf Plan Edition

The recent decision to adopt a weak Wolf Management Plan wasn’t the outcome we were hoping for, but we’re not done fighting for Oregon’s wolves, and hope you’re not either. The team at Oregon Wild would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of you for the countless actions you’ve taken to ensure that wolf recovery remains on track in Oregon. Onward.
