Wildlife

Our members are dedicated to making sure that wildlife has a voice. KEA works to educate the public on wildlife issues while promoting the health of game, non-game wildlife and habitats. The wildlife that demands our atten-tion in northern Idaho are wolves, grizzly bears, woodland caribou, lynx, bull trout, white sturgeon and the pika.

We recently met with federal wildlife law enforcement officials who are investigating the shooting deaths of a grizzly bear and her nursing cub in Boundary County. They would like to offer a $10,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for the incident. The reward is a collection of donated money from non-governmental organizations that would like to see justice served for the killing of a threatened species protected by the ESA. We would like to aid the US Fish and Wildlife Service in their pursuits. If you have any information about the shooting call: (509) 928-6050 or donate here:
