Numbers Don’t Lie, RMEF Charges On

Numbers and statistics can be fickle. You can twist and manipulate them in numerous ways to tell numerous stories. Just ask a baseball player. He can have a great batting average but a lousy slugging percentage. He can have a great on-base percentage but the team may have a losing winning percentage. A pitcher may have a stellar earned run average and a solid walk to strikeout ratio but still have a winless record.

One glance at the latest Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation project history summary shows one simple fact—numbers don’t lie! Dating back to RMEF’s humble beginnings on May 14, 1984, through June 30, 2014, here’s a numerical look at some of RMEF’s cumulative accomplishments:

6,473,344 acres of habitat enhanced or protected
713,176 acres opened or secured for public access
8,795 conservation and hunting heritage outreach projects
203,703 members (as of December 31, 2013)
504 RMEF chapters
10,000+ RMEF volunteers
$918,611,443 = total value of RMEF efforts

What’s the bottom line? RMEF continues to charge forward in its quest to accelerate a mission of ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage. Join us as we work together to make a difference for elk and elk country!
