Grizzly BearsGrizzly bears have lived in Washington’s North Cascades for about 20,000 years. Today, wildlife experts estimate that fewer than 10 grizzly bears remain, making it the most at-risk bear population in North America. But these threatened icons of the wild Northwest have more than a few friends who want to see them return.
Northwest Trek Wildlife Park is partnering with conservation organizations, local businesses, tribal nations, and a growing roster of rural and urban residents in supporting the restoration of a healthy population of grizzly bears to the North Cascades. Wherever grizzlies thrive, so does wildness, clean water, and abundant native fish and wildlife. We support recovering the North Cascades grizzly bear population through best available science and community involvement because it will help keep the Northwest a natural, beautiful and sustainable place in which to live, work and play.
