Save the Pacific Fisher

Action: Wildlife Conservation

April 26, 2013   Action Alert ID# 90

 

Pacific fishers look cute and cuddly with their triangular heads, large, rounded ears and long, bushy tails, but they're one of the only known predators to be capable of taking down porcupines. Sadly, Sadly, these predators with a taste for danger are no match for the logging that's destroying their ancient forest home.

Pacific fishers nearly went extinct in the mid-20th century from trapping and habitat loss. In the United States, these fishers once lived in the forests of Northern California, Oregon and Washington -- but today they hold out only in small populations around the California-Oregon border and in the Sierra Nevada.

Trapping fishers is illegal these days, but the beautiful, ferocious mammals still faces many dire threats to their survival, including climate change, disease and rodenticide poisoning as well as logging. Pacific fishers have been on a waiting list for federal protection since 2004; now they need that protection urgently.

Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to finalize protection for the Pacific fisher so that this amazing mammal isn't lost to extinction.
