Where We Work
The Wildlife Conflict Resolution Center has been working in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem since 2002 on a program to retire livestock grazing allotments that experience chronic conflict with wildlife, especially grizzly bears, wolves, bison, and bighorn sheep. In 2009 NWF expanded this program to the 1.1. million-acre Charles M Russell National Wildlife Refuge in north-central Montana. Ranchers receive fair payment for giving up their grazing privileges, and typically use the funds to secure grazing in locations without wildlife conflicts.
