Grouse Conservation Takes Flight

We lower seven miles of barbed-wire fences seasonally to help reduce Greater Sage-Grouse mortalities resulting from violent, airborne fence collisions.

New Wildlife-Vehicle Collision Maps Released

Knowing where wildlife-vehicle collisions are most likely to occur can help drivers avoid them in the future.

Our Programs

Wildlife Friendlier Fencing

Each year, we organize hundreds of volunteers to remove or modify fences to make them friendlier to wildlife movement. We rely on the voluntary engagement of private landowners and public agencies as we work to reduce migratory barriers and improve landscape permeability for our wild neighbors.

Nature Mapping Jackson Hole

Nature Mapping Jackson Hole, founded by Meg and Bert Raynes and friends, provides an opportunity for citizen scientists to contribute to our local wildlife knowledge base. The collective observations create a long-term baseline dataset of wildlife distribution throughout Jackson Hole. Log your observations at naturemappingjh.org.

Give Wildlife a Brake

In 1994, JHWF launched a multi-faceted wildlife-vehicle collision reduction campaign with immediate mitigation measures on Jackson Hole’s highways to make roads safer for people and wildlife. We also now compile and distribute data that informs future transportation planning with partners such as WYDOT.

Removing Fences to Help Wildlife

Staff, board, and volunteers with our Wildlife-Friendlier Fencing Program have worked in Jackson Hole for over 25 years to remove or improve fences which are barriers to wildlife movement or migration.

Our Mission


The Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation advances wildlife conservation driven by science, collaboration,
and a community of volunteers.
