Making a $45,000 Difference for Conservation

One person can make a difference. Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation members, volunteers, donors, sponsors, partners, staffers and other supporters make a difference for elk and elk country every day. And when it comes to furthering RMEF’s mission of ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage, one person can make a $45,000 difference!

Here’s the deal. Our friends at Nationwide Insurance came up with the idea of a voting competition for its outdoor lovers to choose the conservation effort he or she is most passionate about. The winner receives $45,000. We think we represent a pretty good case. Here’s our pitch: 

Celebrating its 30th year of ensuring the future of elk, elk country and our hunting heritage, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation conducted nearly 9,000 projects to date, enhancing or protecting more than 6.4 million acres of habitat. Along the way, RMEF also opened or secured public access to 713,000 acres for hunters and others to enjoy. In addition, RMEF helped restore elk to their native range in six states and helped protect winter and summer ranges, migration corridors, calving grounds and other crucial areas for wildlife.

The competition begins on Monday, July 21, and runs through October 13. You can vote one time each day. You can also check the daily standings to see how RMEF stacks up against the competition.
