The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation – 30 Years of Wildlife Conservation
Meet Bob Munson, one of the original co-founders of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF). This year, the RMEF is celebrating 30 years of conservation of elk habitat. The RMEF helped to conserve more than 6.6 million acres of habitat. The RMEF also helped to restore long-absent elk populations, with herds being reestablished in Kentucky, North Carolina, Ontario, Tennessee, Missouri, Virginia and Wisconsin. Wisconsin will soon introduce a second elk herd in western Wisconsin.
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation believes that Hunting Is Conservation. Early American leaders like Theodore Roosevelt shaped a set of ideals now known as the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation that declare wildlife belongs to all of us, every citizen is entitled to hunt and fish, and science-based, state-regulated hunting would drive wildlife conservation and management; And no one does more to sustain and uphold this model than the true sportsman / sportswoman.
