Study on Climate Change and High Mountain Ungulates
Yellowstone is home to native bighorn sheep and nonnative mountain goats, both sensitive to climate change. Understanding effects of climate change on food availability, competition, disease, and displacement of bighorn sheep by mountain goats is a key focus of research.
Yellowstone Environmental Stewardship Fellowship Program
Each year, Georgia Tech Research Institute undergraduate and graduate students with engineering and management expertise come to Yellowstone to assist with water conservation, energy use reduction, and other projects of The Greenest Park Initiative.
