In July of 2013 the Rocky Mountain Goat Alliance (RMGA) climbed high into the Henry Mountains to survey a recently discovered population of Mountain Goats. With hopes of finding a minimum of 25 animals, a team of citizen scientists backpacked into goat country. This video is a collaboration of our findings. We are petitioning for the issuing of 2 Montana Mountain Goat tags for the fall of 2014 in this hunting district.
Montana FW&P has been assisting the Rocky Mountain Goat for decades. These conservational efforts have resulted in booming populations in non-native ranges such as the Bridger and Crazy mountain ranges. The Rocky Mountain Goat Alliance is committed to working in tandem with these state officials to expand habitat and solve population decline mysteries.
