sheep are one of the West’s most iconic animals. Their trademark curved horns
and their notorious sure-footedness on even the steepest slopes are legendary.
But now diseases from domestic sheep are spreading, and threatening struggling
populations of bighorn sheep in Idaho’s Hells Canyon and Salmon River watershed.
The Wilderness Society, the Nez Perce Tribe and other
conservation groups have fought for years to remove domestic sheep from these
historic bighorn. Today, nearly 300,000
acres in these rugged canyons are free of disease-bearing domestic sheep for
the first time in over 100 years.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from The Wilderness Society.
