Currently under the management in the Rocky Mountain National Park, when Rocky Mountain Goats enter the park they are either removed or killed because they are not native species. They are native species in Colorado but not in the Rocky Mountain National Park. How can this be?
This is an issue that should concern all our members.
We should be able to do something about this! And we are.
Our organization understands this is one of our most important issues. If you have important information on this topic please contact us.
Thank you for your support.
