TNC Protects High Priority Wildlife Habitat in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

The Nature Conservancy in Idaho announces the purchase of a 634-acre property located 15 miles west of Yellowstone National Park. Located in one of the most ecologically significant regions of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, this project secures the protection of critical habitat and advances efforts to ensure the survival and resiliency of iconic wildlife in this area.

The ranch had been platted for subdivision and fragmentation that would have been devastating for wildlife habitat and migration corridors.
