Fish and wildlife that have disappeared from other parts of the West are still abundant in Montana. But the pressures have never been greater: diseases, invasive species, and pollution threaten our fish and wildlife. MWF works to keep big game abundant, sportfish plentiful, and nongame species from becoming endangered.
PROTECTING WORLD-CLASS BIG GAME
Montana has some of the best populations of deer, elk, pronghorn, and other big game in the West. That’s no accident. MWF works to ensure that big game populations are kept in balance and managed with the best science for the benefit of the public. We fight back when special interests try and manage wildlife according to politics instead of science.
PREVENTING WILDLIFE FROM BECOMING ENDANGERED
Animals that have disappeared in many parts of the West are still abundant in Montana. At the same time, many species are in decline due to habitat loss and other threats. When species reach the brink of extinction, recovery efforts become costly and controversial. By taking action to prevent wildlife from becoming endangered, we can improve the likelihood of success, save taxpayer dollars, and reduce conflict over the Endangered Species Act.
