Places of the Pacific: The Enchantments

Our new Pacific Wildway aims to protect special recreation spaces from British Columbia to Baja California, for both people and wildlife to enjoy. In this new blog post series about recreating in the Pacific Wildway, learn more about a landscape that feels like it belongs to another time and place, with pristine lakes and tarns, jagged peaks, cirques and glaciers. Welcome to the Enchantments. Photo: Richard Forbes

Species of the Pacific Northwest: Bull Trout

In this final post in our series of blog posts profiling Pacific Northwest species, we present to you the bull trout. Like most species that bear the yoke of climate change most acutely, the bull trout faces a combination of persistent threats rather than one major threat. The widespread warming of streams due to human development and climate change is at odds with the bull trout’s conditions for survival. Photo: Shannon Downey, USFWS
