Who we are
The mission of the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation is to advance wildlife conservation driven by science, collaboration,
and a community of volunteers.
We accomplish our mission primarily through on-the-ground projects guided in collaboration with agencies, organizations and private land owners. We also gather and disseminate wildlife data that can inform policy and educate the public.
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, 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.
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.
