I-90 Wildlife Watch is a citizen-based wildlife monitoring project that invites motorists to report wildlife sightings along I-90 in the Snoqualmie Pass region of Washington. If you’re at least 18 years old and you observed (living or dead) wild animals while you were traveling I-90 through Snoqualmie Pass, we need your help! Please click on the “Report a Wildlife Sighting” button below to answer a few brief questions about your sighting. Your participation is voluntary, and you’re welcome to remain anonymous. Thank you!
Why is it important to collect this information?
I-90 intersects the rugged Cascade Mountains in Washington’s Snoqualmie Pass region, which has been identified as a critical link in the north-south movement of wildlife. This area is also the focus of an extensive effort by the Washington State Department of Transportation to improve highway efficiency and make I-90 safer for people and wildlife. The I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition, the Western Transportation Institute, and other I-90 Wildlife Watch partner organizations are currently gathering information about wildlife between North Bend and Easton to help inform highway planning at Snoqualmie Pass. With your valuable assistance, we hope to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions and enhance the safe passage of wildlife in the future.
