HOW WE CONSERVE

HUNTING IS CONSERVATION

At Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, we believe that Hunting Is Conservation.  Theodore Roosevelt helped shaped a set of concepts now known as the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation.  This concept explains that wildlife belong to everyone and that every citizen is entitled to hunt and fish. Is also explores that we are responsible for the conservation and preservation of wildlife and habitat for future generations.  The United States has the most successful system in the world and the backbone of this system are the hunters who believe in these core values.

HOW WE CONSERVE

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation strives to protect crucial elk winter and summer ranges,calving grounds, migration corridors and other crucial areas. We also focus on securing and improving the amount of hunter access throughout elk country. Our methods and conservation tools include access agreements and easements, acquisitions, land and real estate donations, conservation easements, land exchanges and associated acres.

WHERE WE CONSERVE

Since 1984, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and its partners have worked diligently to conserve and enhance over than 7.6 million acres of North America’s finest elk country.  While national preservation is the ultimate goal, RMEF Denver focuses on the preservation of local, Colorado acres and hunting grounds.  As a hunting community, we need to work together to protect and preserve for future generations.
