With dozens of species classified as state-endangered, threatened, or sensitive, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is tasked with guiding recovery efforts for many at-risk animal populations. It's an immense job the department can't do alone; numerous partners and cooperating agencies, tribes, organizations, companies, and landowners contribute time, money, and effort into conservation activities for the state's most vulnerable species.
