Understanding that the future of the American West means little without its iconic wildlife, WELC is dedicated to protecting native animals while preserving and restoring the healthy, functioning natural ecosystems they call home.

Within our Wildlife program, we focus on animals indigenous to the American West. Though not the only wildlife we work to protect, we focus on these seven animals: Canada Lynx, Mexican Gray Wolf, Wild Salmon, Northern Spotted Owl, Wolverine, Grizzly Bear, and Pacific Gray Wolf.
