At a Glance

The Shiras, or Wyoming moose, is a fascinating mammal of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Work to improve and restore the habitat of moose and other local wildlife species, helping them to survive and thrive. Spend half the week in Jackson Hole and the other half of the week on a journey to Daniel, Wyo., where an authentic, 80,000-acre cattle ranch has become a haven for moose and other wildlife displaced by drilling for natural gas. Observe wildlife, learn about wildlife conservation issues, and play a role in habitat restoration.
