Defending WildlifeCrag works with local, regional, and national wildlife conservation groups to protect the Pacific Northwest’s rare and sensitive wildlife species. From butterflies to wolves and from salmon to migrating waterfowl, we stand up for wild animals and their habitat.
What We’re Working On
On behalf of three environmental and forest defense organizations, Crag filed a new lawsuit challenging a Northern California logging project that will harm one of the few successful breeding pairs of the northern spotted owl left in the Shasta Trinity National Forest.
