RMEF collaboration leads to Wyoming habitat conservation

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation recently partnered with the Nature Conservancy and other organizations to conserve more than 3,500 acres of crucial elk and wildlife habitat in west-central Wyoming. Conservation easements on two private ranches will now protect the face of the Lander Front from development.  
The recent projects connect other conserved properties, including the 97,000-acre Shoshone National Forest, 10,000 acres of Bureau of Land Management land, the 427,000-acre Wind River Indian Reservation and 5,500 private acres under conservation easement. This large parcel of undeveloped land provides crucial and rapidly disappearing big game migration corridors and winter range at lower elevations.
