$50,000 Goal


Western Wildlife Outreach's wildlife programs provide a science-based understanding of the Pacific Northwest's four large carnivores - black bear, grizzly bear, cougar and gray wolf.  We teach humans coexistence strategies around their homes, farms, and campsites and other spaces where people and wildlife live together.


WWO works with our partners to provide science-based information about the ecology, biology, and behavior of bears, cougars, and wolves and the low level of risk living around them. By engaging communities in long-term wildlife and habitat stewardship activities, WWO programs foster an appreciation for the large carnivore’s niche in maintaining ecosystem health, providing critical context and links to other environmental recovery efforts happening throughout Washington state.

For GiveBIG 2024, May 7-8, we are raising funds for Bear With Me Washington, a collaborative effort between Western Wildlife Outreach, Farmer Frog, and the National Tribal Emergency Management Council.  

Funds are being raised for education & outreach materials, student scholarships to support field experience in farm and field, travel to bring the Large Carnivore Education Trailer to events across Washington state. 

We accept donations all year long. THANK YOU for your support.
