Canadian Fishers Reintroduced in the USA

Posted by Rudy Kehler at May 29, 2017 10:15 AM |

Historically a common species in Washington, fishers were over-trapped to extinction due to their highly valuable fur. Even after decades of absence from the ecosystem, fisher habitat and their prey base remains intact and abundant, making them exceptional candidates for a population restoration project. Washington is now actively restoring the fisher population by trans-locating fishers from a healthy British Columbia population to the evergreen state’s landscape.
