A new brief video highlights a remarkable collaboration between partners in British Columbia and Washington to recover a species in the Cascades, increasing our biodiversity and showing the power of partnerships.

Partners that working together to recover fishers in the Washington Cascades include First Nations, tribes, NGO’s, and state, federal, and provincial agencies.

Historically a common species in Washington, fishers were over-trapped to extinction due to their highly valuable fur. Even after decades of absence from the ecosystem, fisher habitat and their prey base remains intact and abundant, making them exceptional candidates for a population restoration project. Washington is now actively restoring the fisher population by translocating fishers from a healthy British Columbia population to the evergreen state’s landscape.
