Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) was founded in 1895 in no small part to prevent the extinction of bison in North America. WCS works in over 60 countries to save wildlife and wild places through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature. The Rocky Mountains  Program is one of WCS’s 14 regional programs and has a long history of advancing North American conservation. The Program’s vision is to Rewild the Rockies by protecting ecological integrity and catalyzing ecological, socio-political, and cultural connectivity. WCS implements science-based strategies for restoring and reconnecting species, landscapes, and waterways at scales that are ecologically meaningful and resilient in the face of a changing climate.
