Come work with us! RE Sources is a dynamic, high-impact nonprofit environmental organization based in beautiful Bellingham, Washington. RE Sources protects the communities, creatures and wild places of the central Salish Sea region through a combination of science, advocacy, education and action.

RE Sources stands against racism, white supremacy, and injustice and the ingrained structures and institutions that enable and perpetuate them.
