Idaho's wild landscapes provide some of the last habitat for spectacular wildlife. Here's what the ICL is doing to protect wildlife.

Idaho's wild landscapes provide some of the last habitat for spectacular wildlife.

Hot Topic: Traps and Snares

Idaho’s trails and backcountry areas are fantastic places to take your dog on a walk, run or backpack. Bird hunting with your dog is a time-honored tradition.

However, trapping and snaring for wolves, fox, coyotes, bobcats and beavers is expanding in many places. Unfortunately, dog owners sometimes find their pets unintentionally trapped, ensnared and sometimes killed—and this trend is increasing. 

Let’s keep our pets safe from traps and snares.

How Do We Do This Work?

The Idaho Conservation League engages state and federal agencies responsible for wildlife and wildlife habitat. We advocate for protecting wildlife and their habitat from unsustainable development. We are also part of several collaboratives that are restoring and reconnecting habitat for fish and wildlife.
