Nearly 70% of Oregon’s wildlife spends some or all of their lives on working ranch land. Here in this video they find good, free, reliable sources of water and the isolation they need to survive and thrive. Species like elk, deer, sage grouse and salmon benefit greatly from the habitat-improvement efforts of ranchers. Oregon is home to a community of 12,000 ranching families who care deeply about the natural resources under their care. These are people who have a vested interest in the health and sustainability of the environment, and an economic stake in the future of land, water and wildlife.
