Are You Living Northwest?

A healthy, thriving Northwest that sustains people and wildlife together.
This simple vision unites us—it powers our movement


How It Started

Living Northwest started as a Woodland Park Zoo signature conservation program, and has grown to include a feature exhibit and a movement of individuals, partners and policymakers committed to discovering, recovering and coexisting.

Thank you for sharing your favorite #IAmLivingNorthwest moments!

Photo Contest Winner

We had so many amazing entries, but our official winner is @ yosoymelic (Meli C) and her photo of daughter and mom on a hike.

"I wish that my girl appreciates and cares about the beautiful state we call home—the forest, the amazing nature that surrounds us. I can only spread the seeds for her with my love for nature, sharing how much I enjoy being there and respecting our environment. Of course, I should be going out there more often, but... little steps!"

We love that sentiment, Meli, thank you for sharing this moment with us. Meli will receive six WildLanterns tickets, congratulations!

You can still share your favorite moments of #IAmLivingNorthwest... you might see your post appear on the new screen in Living Northwest Trail! Take a peek near the Sea Eagles next time you visit!
