Elk Migrations of the Greater Yellowstone

Each spring in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE), thousands of elk in 6-8 populations migrate from winter ranges in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, to summer ranges inside Yellowstone National Park. And yet, our understanding and management of the GYE elk migrations remains fragmentary. This project aims to “rediscover” these elk migrations as a singular, trans-boundary phenomenon operating at the scale of the entire GYE.
