More ways to get involved
Our mission is to protect and restore North America’s grizzly bear populations for future generations by conserving wildlife habitat and by supporting programs that reduce conflicts between bears and humans.
Based in Missoula, Montana, and working throughout the northern Rocky Mountains and Inland Northwest, we envision a permanently connected landscape that ensures the long-term survival of grizzlies and the many native species that share their range. By connecting public land strongholds with protected private lands, Vital Ground is the only land trust dedicated to large-landscape conservation for the benefit of grizzly bears, other wildlife and people.

Subject: Please vote for wildlife and our public lands
Our public lands provide essential habitat for wildlife and must be protected. As population growth contributes to urban sprawl and pressure to harvest natural resources such as natural gas, essential wildlife habitat and migratory zones are being negatively impacted. It is imperative that we act decisively to preserve our public lands as open spaces for wildlife habitat and migratory routes. Your actions now will have a lasting impact on our environment and future generations.
Please act for the good of our nation's wildlife by voting for legislation that preserves and protects our public lands and the wildlife that live on them.
