We envision bighorn sheep populations in their natural ranges, supported by science-based management to minimize adverse impacts and maintain healthy, sustainable populations.
Bighorn sheep, not so very long ago, were unbelievably abundant throughout the southern Wind River Mountains
They were a powerful symbol of the wild Wind River Mountains and a vitally important ecological component within the ecosystem.
But now there are young people in Lander who have no knowledge that the bighorns even existed here.
It is therefore up to those of us who knew them, to restore bighorn magic.
With your strong support, bighorns will once again broaden the aesthetic and economic value of central Wyoming and resuscitate bighorn wisdom to these wild and beautiful mountains. Bighorns rightfully belong here.
THE BIGHORN RESTORATION GROUP
is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization with the mission to restore, support and protect populations of healthy bighorn sheep in the Wind River Mountains and other suitable habitats.
