Wyoming has some of the most beautiful and grand landscapes in the entire country. Similarly, the elk that live there are some of the most majestic animals in the deer family. Both of these picturesque resources need protecting, and that’s where the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation comes in. They’ve been providing aid to Wyoming since 1986, and most recently, the RMEF granted $6,046,939 for Wyoming elk habitat research.

“Our dedicated volunteers have a long and successful history of generating funding at chapter banquets and other events in Wyoming,” said Kyle Weaver, RMEF president and CEO. “We express our sincere gratitude for them and their ongoing efforts that help further our mission.”
RMEF Injects $6M Into Wyoming Elk Habitat Research
With their initial contribution of $310,656, the Rocky Mountian Elk Foundation convinced its partners to grant more than $6,000,000 dollars to protect Wyoming’s natural resources. This money will be used to fund 20 projects throughout the state, including water source improvements, wildlife restoration, and research projects. These projects will benefit the entire state, 14 counties within it, and also provide funding to Wyoming Disabled Hunters. Wyoming Disabled Hunters is a national organization that provides disabled hunters with the opportunity to have a safe, quality hunting experience. This is all thanks to the RMEF, its partners, and the 7,600 members in Wyoming.
