Help Protect the Rare and Charismatic Pacific Coast Fisher!

For thousands of years, fishers, a bushy-tailed cat-sized mammal, roamed throughout the forests of the Pacific Coast states. But over the past century, they’ve been disappearing at such a staggering rate that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is finally addressing the threats this imperiled species faces and proposing to protect them under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

Rampant loss of forest habitat due to aggressive logging in earlier decades remains a problem, and unsustainable logging continues to impact fisher habitat. Abnormally large and severe fires as well as poisoning by rodenticide used in illegal marijuana growing operations on public lands are also contributing to the decline of this rare and charismatic critter.

Without help, fishers will lose their fight for survival and could begin to disappear from our West Coast forests.

Your voice makes a difference. Please tell FWS that you support ESA protections for the West Coast fisher!
