Oregon's Fish and Wildlife
It shouldn't be any surprise Oregon's wildlands and wilderness areas provide critical habitat to dozens of species of plants and animals. The question is whether we have the wisdom to retain these large areas of wilderness for the wildlife which call Oregon home.
Oregon's diverse and beautiful landscape provides a home for an incredible diversity of fish and wildlife. From the old-growth forests of the Cascade Mountains, to the wetlands of the the Klamath Basin to the mighty Columbia River, thousands of species depend on our wildlands and water to rest, feed, and raise their young.

Oregon Wild believes we all have a duty to be good stewards of our fish and wildlife. Our goal is to protect and restore Oregon's natural heritage to ensure our grandchildren and great grandchildren will have the chance to fish for wild salmon in rivers like the Clackamas and Rogue, see bald eagles soar over Upper Klamath Lake, and to hear the howl of wolves echo across the backcountry of the Blue Mountains.
