Mission Statement

The Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation works to promote ways for our community to live compatibly with wildlife. We accomplish our mission primarily through on-the-ground projects that we guide in collaboration with agencies, organizations and private land owners. We also gather and disseminate wildlife data that can inform wildlife-friendly policies and educate the public on how to reduce potential conflict with our wild neighbors.

Description

The Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation was formed when a small group of passionate citizens aimed to create a more wildlife-friendly community. Early founders of the organization were distressed to witness hundreds of deer and elk being struck and killed by vehicles on Jackson Hole’s increasingly busy highways. They organized first to combat that problem. The barriers (and dangers) that our valley’s fences present to migrating wildlife became the second issue around which the organization galvanized support, and dozens of volunteers were spurred to action, many of whom are still involved today. Removing or mitigating barriers to wildlife movement remains central to our work.
