KTVZ, a local news outlet in central Oregon, covered our press release about the passage of a new bill in Oregon that will map and protect wildlife crossings. The bill requires the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to map wildlife corridors and work with ODOT and other state agencies to protect them, for example, by incorporating wildlife crossings in new development projects.

Ocean life is an indelible part of the natural heritage of our Pacific states, but unfortunately, critical marine habitats are fragmented and degraded.
Marking the most significant step toward national wildlife conservation in decades, the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act of 2019 was introduced today in both houses of Congress. Led by Sen. Tom Udall, the bill was co-sponsored in the Senate by Richard Blumenthal, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Jeff Merkley, Bernie Sanders, Jon Tester, Sheldon Whitehouse, and Ron Wyden. The bill was introduced in the House of Representatives by Congressmen Don Beyer and Vern Buchanan.
In this first blog post in a new series, we’re taking a closer look at American martens, who are integral in developing well-balanced forest communities and will greatly benefit from connected and protected habitats. Wildlands Network is actively working to increase habitat connectivity for this special creature in regions like the Pacific. Photo: Erwin and Peggy Bauer
In response to today’s announcement that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service intends to remove Endangered Species Act protections for most gray wolves in the lower 48 states, Wildlands Network’s senior carnivore advocate Kim Crumbo condemned the move as premature and not based on sound science.
