Quoting PERC: The ancient pathways of elk are the heartbeat of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem—herds shifting with the seasons to sustain the wonder of this place.

But from forage loss to the threat of brucellosis, providing this habitat brings costs to the rancher. Increasing population density and development in places like Paradise Valley also represent serious threats for the elk, ranchers, and broader ecosystem. To conserve big game migrations, we must keep the large, private lands of Paradise Valley intact.
