Healthy Habitats

Plant and animal species rely on healthy and resilient habitats to survive. A healthy habitat provides wildlife with food, water, shelter, and space. Unfortunately, wildlife habitats throughout our region are threatened by air and water pollution, deforestation, and the effects of human-induced climate change.

Through our Healthy Habitats program, Rocky Mountain Wild works to identify, protect, and restore functioning and resilient habitats. The areas that we safeguard include the Uinta Basin, Roan Plateau, Sage Brush Sea, and dozens of other smaller habitats on Forest Service and BLM lands.
