Bighorn sheep have been mismanaged for decades and are now dying from diseases spread by non-native domestic sheep. We are working to turn this around and restore their struggling populations.
Disease and improper conduct have wiped out populations of this iconic Western species.
For a decade we have led efforts to provide bighorn sheep with their own place in the forest, free from grazing domestic sheep that spread disease.
We are working with sportsmen and tribal members to save bighorn sheep populations from disease and mismanagement.
Wilderness is a precious resource with many human, natural and economic benefits that we need to protect.
Learn more about issues affecting the places we work to protect with our Notes from the Field.
