National Elk Refuge

National Wildlife Refuge - Wyoming

The National Elk Refuge is located in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and protects habitat and provides sanctuary for one of the largest elk (also known as wapiti) herds on Earth. The refuge is home to an average of 7,500 elk each winter. The refuge's elk migrate from as far away as southern Yellowstone National Park. Historically, they migrated to the present location of the refuge and further south into southwestern Wyoming during the fall, wintering on grassy plains that were both sheltered from weather and that maintained less snowfall or snow depth than surrounding lands. During the spring, the herd would follow the retreating snows and growing grasses back into the Yellowstone National Park region.
