As you will see when you make your way through this site we are dedicated to the care of Yellowstone ecosystem wildlife that cannot return to the wild due to injury or human imprinting. We ask our non-releasable wild animals to act as ambassadors to help teach visitors about the value of wildlife, habitat preservation and conservation. We hope you’ll come and visit us in person, but if you can’t make it to Montana right away, we hope all the stories, photos and videos will help you keep up with our residents. Stay tuned for our new webcam, which will allow us to video stream our ‘kids’ right into your living room. See the donation page if you’d like to donate to the purchase of this webcam!
By caring for animals unable to return to the wild, the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary’s primary focus is to educate the public about the protection and conservation of Yellowstone ecosystem wildlife and natural habitats.
