For the sixth year in a row, ranchers in Washington’s wolf country partnered with Conservation Northwest to demonstrate the effectiveness of range riders for deterring conflicts with wolves. The Project also focused on sharing knowledge in 2016, hosting ranchers and range riders from our state on two trips to Montana to learn from ranchers who coexist with wolves.The Range Rider Pilot Project is a collaborative effort between Conservation Northwest and local ranchers. We also coordinate with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), independent wolf experts, professional scientists, and other partners to support this project.
