About Us

Mission:

Safe Wildlife Crossings for Jackson Hole encourages innovative solutions for wildlife crossings that provide safe highways, prevent habitat fragmentation and promote connectivity for Jackson Hole’s world-class wildlife.

What We Do

We advocate for and encourage the design and implementation of safe and effective wildlife crossings based on sound science, research and road-kill data. “Stewardship of Wildlife and Natural Resources in Jackson Hole,” is a top value and high priority according to ongoing community surveys. We seek to actively support this expressed priority.

We support the Wyoming Department of Transportation’s commitment to include wildlife crossings in highway construction as demonstrated in their efforts at Nuggett Canyon and Trappers Point.

Provide information regarding the development of Safe Wildlife Crossings around the world on our Website and Facebook pages.

Serve as a catalyst for community-wide cooperation and involvement through educational programs and community events to inform and inspire support for human and wildlife safety on Jackson Hole highways.

We raise funds through donations and grants facilitated through our non-profit partner, The Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance, to provide needed wildlife studies, an informative website, educational outreach, public events and forums, printed material and advertising that promote safe and effective wildlife crossings.
