Ready to make wildlife sightings count?
You can volunteer to help wildlife during your visit to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem simply by recording the wildlife you see on our Nature Mapping Jackson Hole app!
Simply download the FREE app and map observations on your own or learn about participating in “Nature Mapping Jackson Hole” while on a tour. The observations you enter into our database can be accessed and used by researchers to better understand wildlife populations, including helping to determine things like timing of migration, habitat value, and even roadkill hotspots.
