From the heat of August to the deep freeze of January, our Landmark crews collect wildlife data on the American Prairie Reserve. The data is used to help American Prairie Reserve make wildlife management decisions that support their goal to create the largest protected wildlife area in the continental United States.
To further that goal, American Prairie Reserve has created Wild Sky, a for-profit beef company that uses proceeds from their sales to encourage wildlife-friendly ranching adjacent to the reserve. Through education and incentives, they hope to get ranchers to view wildlife as a benefit, instead of a liability. Our Landmark crews help provide the wildlife data that American Prairie Reserve and Wild Sky need to educate these local ranchers. This video from Wild Sky shows why our camera traps and wildlife data are crucial to accomplishing these goals.
