NORTH AMERICAN WILDLIFE

The Rocky Mountain Region & Pacific northwest are both famous for their beautiful scenery and are home to some of North America's most iconic wildlife including wolves, grizzly bears, bison, wolverines, and bighorn sheep. Unfortunately, the animals we love in these regions are facing many threats. Human activity and climate change affect wildlife's critical habitat and food sources. A less understood threat, that is amplified by these changes, is disease. Understanding precisely what diseases may threaten or decimate a fragile species’ population is critical to ensuring their survival.
