$25,000 Goal

We envision a biologically healthy future for our region – one that includes a diversity of species and ecosystems, thriving populations of wildlife, and a sustainable coexistence between people and nature. Using research, community science, legal action, and advanced geospatial analysis, we offer solutions for conserving our most at-risk animal and plant species and landscapes.

Protecting biodiversity is a BIG job, and we know that we can’t do it alone. We are actively building a diverse community of educators, students, activists, philanthropists, and community scientists to help us make our vision a reality. From providing guidance on our board of directors to helping us collect data in the field, our community makes our work possible – and fun.


Rocky Mountain Wild is a 501(c)3 that works to protect, connect, and restore wildlife and wild lands in the Southern Rocky Mountain region.

Background Statement

We started Rocky Mountain Wild in 1999 to fill a vital role - an organization dedicated to the protection of the most imperiled plants and wildlife of the Southern Rocky Mountain region. Beginning as a scrappy, volunteer-staffed group with virtually no budget, we have matured into a regional conservation force with a budget of just over $500,000 and a staff of six in a shared leadership structure, including a Conservation Biologist, Conservation Ecologist, Conservation Geographer, Legal Director, Fundraising Director, and Communications Director.
