Wildlife Sanctuary Program

Seattle Parks and Recreation, in cooperation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, is proud to announce the Wildlife Sanctuary Program. With your help, we can identify and protect critical urban wildlife habitat for Washington State's most vulnerable species.

Parks' Wildlife Sanctuary Policy articulates Parks' commitment to sustain habitats for a wide variety of wildlife and outlines steps Parks will take to create and manage wildlife sanctuaries for these species:

  • Local populations of federally endangered or threatened species
  • State Priority Species or Species of Concern
  • Locally important species with declining populations

Parks invites nominations for park sites that could become wildlife sanctuaries in parks in our community. Individuals or community groups can nominate a sanctuary between April 15 and June 15, 2009.

Our goal is to promote the value of healthy and diverse urban wildlife populations by working with the community to combine planning efforts, maintenance practices, educational opportunities, and volunteer stewardship to support our Wildlife Sanctuaries.

For assistance or information, please call Barbara DeCaro at 206-615-1660 or email her at barbara.decaro@seattle.gov
