The Vital Ground Foundation is a land trust that conserves and connects habitat for grizzly bears and other wildlife. We also team up with communities to prevent conflicts between bears and people.

THANK YOU wildlife heroes!

Vital Ground’s One Landscape Initiative will protect wildlife habitat and prevent conflicts in the most critical locations across the Northern Rockies and Inland Northwest. See video.


Since 1990, we’ve helped protect and enhance 683,000 acres of land. From Yellowstone into Canada, our strategic focus is on remaining grizzly bear habitat in western North America. Our One Landscape Initiative protects private lands that connect the region’s wild strongholds.
