Help support this project and allow us to continue to provide this information
the network: Providing up-to-date information on
endangered, threatened, and other species of conservation concern within
the Pacific Northwest, this site is a work in progress and has not been completed. Species found within Washington State are presently
covered more completely than those of Idaho and Oregon. If you have any
comments or suggestions about this information
network please contact us at email@example.com.
Call to action: Throughout the world, many animal and plant populations are declining at unusually high rates. The threat of massive extinction is a sign that our environment has been seriously degraded and a call to action to protect both threatened and healthy populations. Species decline and extinction does not concern only animals and plants of far-off lands, many once-plentiful species from our own back yard are negatively affected by a degraded environment and loss of habitat. A number of Pacific Northwestern species that were once abundant and symbolized this region are now at the brink of extinction. As the web of life is interconnected, it stands to reason that our personal well-being and quality of life are jeopardized by many of the same factors that are causing the decline of non-human species.
Pacific Biodiversity Institute (PBI)
brings you this Internet resource with the intention of providing the most up to
date and complete information on federally and state listed endangered,
threatened and sensitive species as well as other species of conservation
concern. It is hoped that this information can be used by all people, everywhere
so that species extinction can be avoided.
