Challenge

Yellowstone National Park is home to some of the most magnificent animals in America. However, once iconic species like the gray wolf, grizzly bear, bighorn sheep and bison leave the protected borders of the park, their death rates rise dramatically! These animals' migration patterns take them outside of the park, where they are in close proximity to grazing ranch lands. This dangerous crossroads poses serious mortality risk to livestock and wildlife from both animal and human conflict.

Solution

National Wildlife Federation's mission is to inspire Americans to protect wildlife four our children's future. NWF works with more than 4 million members, partners and supporters in communities across the country to protect and restore wildlife habitat, confront climate change and connect people with nature.
National Wildlife Federation's Adopt-a-Wildlife-Acre program solves dangerous conflicts between wildlife and livestock around Yellowstone National Park and throughout the Northern Rockies. With your help, we work to retire critical territory for wild bighorn sheep, bison, grizzly bears, wolves and other wildlife. The Adopt-a-Wildlife-Acre program creates agreements with local ranchers where we offer fair prices in exchange for retiring their grazing lands, giving wildlife more room to roam.

Long-Term Impact

This unique program recognizes the economic value of livestock grazing permits and fairly compensates ranchers for retiring their leases. As grazing allotments are often on public lands, a retirement requires voluntary participation from both public and private parties, and only happens when all are satisfied- a true win-win-win program!
