More money needed for fisher release in North Cascades NP

Washington’s National Park Fund, in partnership with North Cascades National Park, is planning to release a population of fishers (Martes pennanti) into the park next winter. This follows successful recovery programs in Olympic and Mount Rainier national parks. But $80,000 is needed to underwrite the project at North Cascades.

The funds are needed by October 1 to pay for trapping, boarding, and veterinary expertise for 40 fishers. To date, $15,000 has been raised.
