WWF Abstract

Yellowstone is well-known as America's oldest national park and famous for its geysers. The Teton, Wind River, and Bighorn mountains are known for their majestic peaks. But they are also home to some of the most intact ecosystems in the United States. This is the only place left in the United States where wild bison, lynx, and grizzlies can be found.
