Virtual Lecture: Reintroducing Fishers to Washington: An Example of Cultural Competence in Conservation Biology

When: Tue., March 30, 6:30-7:30 p.m. 2021

The fisher, a medium sized carnivore and member of the weasel family, used to be a common species in Washington until fur trapping pushed them to local extinction. Efforts to reintroduce the species have not only focused on successful translocation of fishers but also on collaborations with Tribes and First Nations to ensure long-term conservation success. During this lecture, Dr. Tara Chestnut, National Park Service ecologist at Mount Rainier National Park, will share her experiences working as part of the Washington Cascades Fisher Restoration Team.
