Elk in Paradise: Conserving Yellowstone’s Migration Pathways

The ancient pathways of elk are the heartbeat of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem—herds shifting with the seasons to sustain the wonder of this place. The rancher, ecologist, and hunter agree that the private working lands of Paradise Valley provide essential habitat for the migratory species we love. But from forage loss to the threat of brucellosis, providing this habitat brings costs to the rancher. Increasing population density and development in places like Paradise Valley also represent serious threats for the elk, ranchers, and broader ecosystem. To conserve big game migrations, we must keep the large, private lands of Paradise Valley intact. Join PERC for a free event premiering PERC’s latest short film Elk in Paradise: Rancher, Ecologist, Hunter as well as a panel discussion with landowners, sportsmen, and conservation specialists. Panelists will include hunter and media personality Randy Newberg, wildlife ecologist Arthur Middleton, and journalist Todd Wilkinson. Reception with hors d’oeuvres and drinks to follow.
