Doing what they do best, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, in conjunction with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (among others) has raised over $290,000. This money is set to benefit wildlife in the Land of Enchantment including elk, wolves, and mule deer. With such an arid climate, volunteers are determined to protect New Mexico wildlife as well as the habitats in which they live.

Exactly $291,406 has been raised to help maintain and improve New Mexico’s wildlife. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and its partners made this happen from an initial contribution of $59,000. This money will be used to fund 11 projects throughout the state. These projects will benefit nine counties in New Mexico (Catron, Lincoln, McKinley, Sandoval, San Juan, San Miguel, Santa Fe, Sierra, and Socorro) as well as some parts of Arizona. The goals of these projects range from providing life-sustaining water for wildlife to removing invasive plant species. This is all made possible by the 12 chapters and 5,400 RMEF members in New Mexico.
