Livestock grazing and associated developments threaten Snake River steelhead, bull trout, and Chinook salmon
On May 7, 2009, WWP filed a legal complaint asking the Superior Court of the state of Washington to stop the planned turnout of livestock on the Asotin Wildlife Area, a Washington state wildlife area purchased by the citizens of Washington to preserve native fisheries and wildlife habitat.
The Asotin Wildlife Area is located in the southeastern corner of the state, approximately 20 miles southwest of Clarkston. Portions of the Wildlife Area abut the Umatilla National Forest. It is part of the larger Blue Mountain Wildlife Area Complex, which encompasses over 60,000 acres in southeastern Washington.
