Landscape Scale Conservation
The Institute seeks to maintain an un-fragmented landscape in the Pioneer - Craters region. The Institute is partnering with The Nature Conservancy, the Wood River Land Trust, The Conservation Fund, the Idaho Conservation League, and other entities to accomplish long-term land protection measures.
These land conservation efforts will protect migration corridors and core habitat for wide-ranging wildlife species including pronghorn, sage grouse, deer, and elk, and for sensitive and/or declining species. In addition, the Institute works to protect free flowing waterways and associated riparian habitats.
