Wildlife habitat is being lost to development at an unprecedented pace. And in today’s economic environment of escalating land costs, it is imperative that conservation organizations cooperate and collaborate to maximize their ability to protect important wildlife habitat.

The following nonprofit organizations have partnered with Vital Ground to protect crucial habitat for grizzly bears and other wildlife. In some cases, these partners contributed directly to a Vital Ground led project. In other cases, Vital Ground contributed funds to assist with a partner’s conservation project. We appreciate the good work these organizations do.
