World Wildlife Fund’s Northern Great Plains - US and Canada
$151,419 in grants from 2014-2019
World Wildlife Fund’s Northern Great Plains project works with the ranching community, public agencies, and tribal nations to ensure that the richness of the prairie ecosystem is sustained for future generations. The Northern Great Plains spans over 180 million acres in the US states of Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska, as well as the two Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. This is WWF’s only US based project. WorldWomenWork assists in this project through empowering local women and funding the reintroduction of swift foxes and black footed ferrets into this region.
