A Note from the Regional Director
Recent events at Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge remind our Northern Rockies, Prairies and Pacific team of the relevance our work and your support has to life in our region. Conserving wildlife and wildlife habitat, and maintaining people’s diverse connections to nature has everything to do with your way of life and quality of life.

Congress has opportunities to act on broadly supported measures to improve public-land management, but it’s also clear that the work and progress summarized in this update are needed more than ever.

Yellowstone, Tribes Offer Bison a Better Future
Yellowstone, Tribes Offer Bison a Better Future
Year after year, many of the bison forced by deep snows to migrate out of Yellowstone National Park are trapped by government employees, herded into trucks and sent to slaughterhouses. It’s an appalling betrayal of modern wildlife-management principles. But there’s good news: This could be the last winter that Yellowstone sends bison to slaughter en masse. The National Park Service proposes to ship bison to Fort Peck Reservation for eventual use in restoring and expanding herds on reservations and beyond.

Learn about the plans to help bison.

The permits for the Tongue River Railroad have stalled, and Arch Coal just filed for bankruptcy. Washington and Oregon are weaning their electric power away from coal, and three Montana newspapers recently ran editorials advocating for a transition away from coal to cleaner energy.

All of these things are bad for the big coal companies, but they are good for wildlife. Read on.
