From climate and wildlife to citizen science and vegetation, Glacier is a thriving laboratory home to over 1200 plant species, 240 bird species, and 65 species of native mammals. Its habitat extends well beyond the park’s borders, making the Crown of the Continent one of the most biologically intact ecosystems in North America. The Conservancy funds research on priority issues that help us understand Glacier and inform conservation decisions that protect Glacier’s future.
At the Conservancy, we fund the following:
- Create a Leading Native Plant Nursery Facility for School Groups and Volunteers
- Saving Threatened Native Bull Trout in Akokala Lake
- Engaging Visitors in Citizen Science to Promote Stewardship While Monitoring Species of Concern
- The Private Lives of Grizzly Bears – A Family Tree to Evaluate Effective
- Population Size
- Hawk Owl Breeding Habitat Study
