Rocky Mountain Wild works to protect, connect, and restore wildlife and wild lands in the Southern Rocky Mountain region.
We envision a biologically healthy future for our region – one that includes a diversity of species and ecosystems, thriving populations of wildlife, and a sustainable coexistence between people and nature. Using research, community science, legal action, and advanced geospatial analysis, we offer solutions for conserving our most at-risk animal and plant species and landscapes.
Protecting biodiversity is a BIG job, and we know that we can’t do it alone. We are actively building a diverse community of educators, students, activists, philanthropists, and community scientists to help us make our vision a reality. From providing guidance on our board of directors to helping us collect data in the field, our community makes our work possible – and fun.
Because we are all in this together.
