Grizzly Bear Conservation
For the Benefit of All Things Wild

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.

Vital Ground Vision

We think boldly. We envision a connected North American grizzly population and a resilient landscape where people and wildlife thrive.

WHERE WE WORK

Since 1990, we’ve helped protect and enhance 620,000 acres of land. From Yellowstone into Canada, our strategic focus is on remaining grizzly bear habitat in western North America. Check out the places¬†where we work on behalf of grizzly bear conservation, people, and the entire wild community.
