The Greater Yellowstone Coalition works with people to protect the lands, waters and wildlife of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.  This vast ecosystem includes twenty million acres of wild country that includes Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, five national forests, five national wildlife refuges, and state and private lands in Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. This unique region supports one of the last intact ecosystems in the world’s temperate zones, with all of the native wildlife species and wild nature working as it should. We are the on-the-ground advocates for conservation, sound science and protective management of the world’s first national park and the wildlands that surround it.
