If all of Oregon’s urban areas were placed together, they would cover approximately 6 percent of the state’s land area. Conservation now often means modifying human landscapes to do double-duty as wildlife habitat — or, more accurately, to continue functioning for wildlife even as humans colonize them for their homes, highways, and farms.

There is simply no place else for animals to live. The ambition to create new protected areas still persists, of course.
