Greater Yellowstone Coalition
1,122,441 acres protected

Greater Yellowstone Coalition used our funding for its Absaroka-Beartooth Front Protection Campaign to seek permanent protection for 1.8 million acres of the Absaroka-Beartooth Front, including prohibitions on energy development in critical wildlife habitat and migration corridors. By engaging in the planning process for the Shoshone National Forest, GYC won protections for 916,441 acres, putting these lands off limits to energy development. GYC also participated in BLM’s Lander Resource Management Plan, which prohibits energy development on 206,000 acres.
