Wildlife and Plants

Rocky Mountain Wild is committed to ensure no species is lost on our watch. As habitat destruction, irresponsible energy drilling, global climate change and attacks on the Endangered Species Act push species to the brink of extinction, we have changed our tactics, pursued stronger protections, advocated for new scientific study, and reformed the oil and gas leasing process. Rocky Mountain Wild reintroduces lynx, wolverine and other species driven to extinction in our region, restoring balance to our diverse native ecosystems.
