Overview
The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild places around the world through science, global conservation, education, and the management of the world's largest system of urban wildlife parks, led by the flagship Bronx Zoo. This grant supports the Society's North America Program in its efforts to protect large, ecologically important landscapes in the West by connecting wildlife movement corridors. They will accomplish this by working to increase understanding of wildlife migration patterns, supporting landowner efforts to maintain intact ranches, and ensuring that western states incorporate science-based recommendations into habitat protection plans. The Wildlife Conservation Society will focus its work on the ecosystem surrounding Glacier National Park in Montana, the High Divide wildlife movement corridor in central Idaho, and the southern Arizona desert.
