You can help secure the future for Yellowstone grizzly bears

In 2015, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition silently launched an ambitious, yet thoughtful, 5-year, $10 million fundraising campaign in support of our grizzly bear work. Over the past four years, donors from across the nation have helped GYC achieve a number of on-the-ground improvements that are keeping bears alive and people safe.

With this campaign, GYC has focused on three critical goals: core habitat, reducing human/bear conflicts, and connecting Greater Yellowstone grizzly bears to populations further north.

To date, we’ve raised $9,598,821 million in cash, pledges, loaned, and leveraged funds. Between now and December 31, 2019, we hope to raise the final $401,179.

Help secure the future of Yellowstone’s grizzly bears. Please consider a gift and become a campaign donor. Together, we will make a lasting difference.
