The Wildlife Conservation Trust (WCT) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to the study of wildlife and natural habitats of the Pacific Northwest. The WCT was formed in 1995. Our group of dedicated volunteers works to identify, support, develop, and operate research and educational projects that often slip through the cracks of other organizations. Our projects are based on sound, scientific principles and outreach programs that bring together research scientists and citizen scientists. Although the WCT is a non-advocacy organization, our projects generate scientifically valid data that can assist in crafting and implementing effective conservation policies.
